3.2 Sample Application

This section provides a sample application to be used in subsequent exercises and examples in this chapter. The example, which illustrates a simple program, favors brevity and probing opportunity rather than completeness or efficiency.

Note

The following simple program is provided for example purposes only and is not intended to efficiently solve a practical problem nor exhibit preferred coding methods.

The sample program finds the lowest factor of a number, which you input. The program is comprised of the following four files: makefile, primelib.h, primelib.c, and primain.c , which are stored in the same working directory.
