Why is `factor` in GNU #coreutils? Are there really a lot of people looking to get prime factors in their bash scripts?
This tool isn't even very good. I passed it the modulus from an RSA4096 key and it hasn't even finished yet.
@synack Wow, so not only is this weird tool in GNU Coreutils, someone's actively updating it (or at least, updated it once since the version I'm using)!
