Try commenting your code, sort out the indentation and post the algorithm you think this implements.I have written a C code program for factorization of a given number into two divisors, when the two divisors are having approximately the same number of digits . It cannot check for prime numbers.

With my code limit I can check it only upto 14 digits using long long int. It is working perfectly upto these 14 digits (condition is the two divisors must have app the same no.of.digits). Bigger than 14 digits it is yielding wrong answers.

because it is a math forum, I like to post the code here. So that someone can check its efficiency for large numbers.

If anyone's idea is to use GMP libray, I have already installed gmp using msys, and had written a C code program using gmp. The problem I faced is, when I compiled the program , it compiled perfectly. But when I selected to Run the code, It says "Project is stopped working". The problem is in input and output code lines i.e., I used printf and scanf functions to get o/p and i/p.

To avoid this problem I did not find any best tutorial on GMP. And I did not understand what he is saying about the o/p and i/p functions, in the Documentation of GMP-5.0.1.

If you accept to post the code using gmp , I will post that also.

Thankful for the forum mentors and moderators and users , and for any replies given.

As I said the two divisors should be closer to each other in terms of no.of.digits. This will give one factor and the other will be given number divided by the above obtained factor. It will not work on prime numbers.

here factor is (aN1+b1) if we got N1 as an integer . or (aN2+b1) if we got N2 as an integer.

Here b1 = anyone of the b1 values we got in the answer.

Any replies given will be helpful to me . thanks.
