Basically I'm writing my MSc dissertation right now, and I've been doing a lot on primes(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've written all my code in MATLAB, but my supervisor told me today that MATLAB is crap for higher order arithmetic and the primes only go up to something like 10 digits long.

SO I'm kinda screwed right now, he suggests using Maple but I'm already so far through. Is there any way I can add something to MATLAB to make it store more primes? Or be able to factor an integer 100 digits long?

Thanks
