NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       factor - prints prime factors

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       factor [NUMBER]
       factor [options]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       This manual page documents briefly the GNU factor command.  This manual
       page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution (but may be used
       by  others),  because the original program does not have a manual page.
       Instead, it has documentation in the GNU Info format; see below.

       factor prints prime factors of a number.  If no NUMBER is specified  on
       the  command  line, factor reads numbers from standard input, delimited
       by newlines, tabs, or spaces.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The programs follow the	usual  GNU  command  line  syntax,  with  long
       options	starting  with	two  dashes  (`-').   A summary of options are
       included below.	For a complete description, see the Info files.

       --help Show summary of options.

	      Show version of program.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

       This program is documented fully by Shell  utilities:  (sh-utils),  GNU
       shell utilities, available via the Info system.
