;strategy
;strategy We start with the number, and substract the current prime-divisor
;strategy until the result is lower than the current prime divisor. While
;strategy doing it, mark the memory with #1 so we can generate the new prime-
;strategy divisors at the same time. This as the advantage of not having to
;strategy keep a table of divisors in the code (would use 24 locations) nor
;strategy having to compute them before-hand for nothing. But if number is
;strategy too large, we modify ourselves (oups !).
;strategy
;strategy The calculation loop is four instructions long, which i believe
;strategy would be hard to beat (but not impossible, would make program
;strategy longer though).
;strategy
;strategy If the result of the substract loop is zero, we have found a
;strategy divisor, so keep it and re-use it again.
;strategy
;strategy If the result is non-zero, scan the marked memory, beginning
;strategy at the current prime-divisor to find the new prime-divisor.
