Warning, this post contains code for Euler problem 5. Try to solve it youself without looking at anyones code. Its alot more satisfying if you do it yourself.

Hello, just found an interesting website called project euler. I managed to get to problem 5 without a too many problems. Anyways I'm at the debugging stage, and I must say that I've never seen anything like this.:-O

```
/* Euler problem 5:
2520 is the smallest number that can be divided by each of the numbers from 1
to 10 without any remainder.
What is the smallest number that is evenly divisible by all of the numbers
from 1 to 20? */
#include <stdio.h>
int ldivisibleby(int max);
int isdivisible(int max, int number);
int main() {
printf("%d\n", isdivisible(10, 360)); /* For debugging */
printf("The smallest number that is evenly divisible by all the numbers from "
"1 to 10 is: %d\n", ldivisibleby(10));
return 0;
}
int ldivisibleby(int max) {
/* This function returns the lowest number divisible by 1 to 'max'. Max must be
at least 2. It works by increacing the test number by max, and checking if
its divisible by the numbers 1 to 'max'. If it isnt, increase test and try
again. */
int curnum = max;
while(1) {
if(isdivisible(max, curnum)) {
if(curnum == 360) /* For debugging */
printf("Debug\n"); /* For debugging */
return curnum; }
curnum += max;
}
}
int isdivisible(int max, int number) {
/* This function returns 1 if the number is divisible by every number between 1
and 'max'. It only tests against 2 and odd numbers above 2 to save time
(all numbers are divisible by 1, and if the number is divisible by 2, its
divisible by all even numbers.) */
int count = 3;
if(number % 2 != 0)
return 0;
while(count < max) {
if(number % count != 0)
return 0;
count += 2;
}
return 1;
}
```

And the output is:

```
0
The smallest number that is evenly divisible by all the numbers from 1 to 10 is: 630
```

First of all, 630 is divisible by 7. According to the 0 at the top, 630 is not the answer. Becouse "Debug" did not appear under the 0, 630 should have never been returned, but it is anyway. I'm using gcc v4.2. Any explinations. (P.S. I don't want people to point out bug's that arnt related to this one. I'll sqwish those bugs as soon as it starts telling the truth.)

Thanks alot to anyone who can help me. :)
