Description Author

This class can get the prime factors of a number upto 100 billion.

It takes a number and decomposes it into factor numbers that are prime.

The class returns the prime factors in an array variable. Optionally it can output all the prime factors as it finds them.

It uses a data file to extract the lowest prime factors faster.

Usage is very simple
1) Include class script file 


2) Initiate a new object of class prime_factors
	$test=new prime_factors;

3) Call factorize function passing the desired whole number in braces
	The output is 'Finding factors of 13... 13';
	The output is 'Finding factors of 1024... 2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2';

4) By default class echoes the result, but setting $test->echo=0; will mute the echoes.

5) $factors=$test->factorize(N); syntax returns array of all prime factors of N.
	If N itself is prime array containing only one factor N is returned.

6) This class comes with a pre-existing data set used for speedy alogorithm which should 
	be kept intact for integrity of results.  Any changes in that data-set may result in 
	wiered or falsified results.
