 Author: Irrlicht [ Sun Jul 16, 2017 1:39 pm ] Post subject: Lowest common multiple and greatest common divisor I see there aren't built-in functions for this, so what would you advise to make macros where you can calculate lowest common multiple and greatest common divisor from lists of numbers (possibly with virtually unlimited lists... within reason, of course... I know throwing in a list of a thousand numbers could be taxing... and probably will never have lists longer than ten numbers).
