A question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If I want to find all divisors of for example 29601 and in general all divisors of any (large) number, do I have to do it "on foot" i.e. with help of the division rules or checking each number looking if it divides the given number?...As far as I know there is no unified algorithm for computing the divisors of any number...or am I wrong? Does there exist such an algorithm?Computing divisors of small numbers is clearly a cheap task but I find it extremely tedious for large numbers.
