in thread Algorithm for cancelling common factors between two lists of multiplicands

You might have a look at Math::Big::Factors, which I found useful, and is pure Perl. (Note that the docs have a typo, and mentionComing up with an efficient, pure perl implementation of prime factorisation (limiting myself to integers 0 .. 2**32 ) is my current fun challenge :)

`factor_wheel`where the function is actually named

`factors_wheel`.)
