GNU/Linux Command – FACTOR

factor — Print prime factors
Print the prime factors of each number. The algorithm it uses is not very sophisticated, so for some inputs `factor’ runs for a long time.
$ factor 25 -- Print prime factors  $ factor 125 200 -- Print prime factors for each number.  $ factor `echo '2^64-1' | bc` -- Factors the largest 64-bit number. $ factor `echo '4294967279 * 4294967291' | bc` -- Factors the largest 32-bit prime numbers. (Warning: It take more time)
