NAME ^

Math::Factor::XS - Factorize numbers and calculate matching multiplications

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Math::Factor::XS ':all';
 # or
 use Math::Factor::XS qw(factors matches);

 $number = 30107;

 @factors = factors($number);
 @matches = matches($number, \@factors);

 print "$factors[1]\n";
 print "$number == $matches[0][0] * $matches[0][1]\n";

DESCRIPTION ^

Math::Factor::XS factorizes numbers by applying trial divisions.

FUNCTIONS ^

factors

Factorizes numbers.

 @factors = factors($number);

The number will be entirely factorized and its factors will be returned as a list.

matches

Calculates matching multiplications.

 @matches = matches($number, \@factors, { skip_multiples => [0|1] });

The factors will be multiplicated against each other and all combinations that equal the number itself will be returned as a two-dimensional list. The matches are accessible through the indexes; for example, the first two numbers that matched the number may be accessed by $matches[0][0] and $matches[0][1], the second pair by $matches[1][0] and $matches[1][1], and so on.

The hashref provided at the end is optional. If skip_multiples is set to a true value, then matching multiplications that contain multiplicated small factors will be discarded. Example:

 11 * 2737 == 30107 # accepted
 77 * 391  == 30107 # discarded

Direct use of $Math::Factor::XS::Skip_multiple does no longer have an effect as it has been superseded by skip_multiples.

EXPORT ^

Functions

factors(), matches() are exportable.
