in thread OT: Finding Factor Closest To Square Root

For the case of 1994, I'd say 2 is closer to 44.65... than 997. For 1993, I'd probably go with 1 over 1e99 or 1993. For 99999999, I think 9999 (101*11*3*3) is closest. (I'm just basing this on the comments after the __END__ tag in your code, 'cause I'm to lazy to install Math::Big::Factor)


-- All code is 100% tested and functional unless otherwise noted.

    I think that Math::Big::Factor may be a red-herring anyway. See Re: OT: Finding Factor Closest To Square Root.
