Is there any way to find distinct prime factors for very large numbers using `Prime`

and/or `PrimePi`

that exceeds the capabilities/limits of `PrimeNu`

No, in general it's impossible. I gave a comment to one of your similar recent questions and that should be clear enough from that comment. Once more I have to put this link: What is so special about Prime?.

can evaluate its value for e.g.`50!`

while neither`Prime`

nor`PrimePi`

cannot. Seems like you don't read comments to your questions. Is it clear enough ?OK many thanks - I did read previous comments, but was clearly not understanding things correctly. – martin – 2013-12-19T10:53:38.893
