NAME

       matho-sumsq - Find the minimum sum of the squares for integers

SYNOPSIS

       matho-sumsq [numbers]

DESCRIPTION

       This  command-line  utility is optionally part of the mathomatic(1) package.  It finds the
       minimum number of positive integers that when squared and added together, equal the  given
       number.   There  is  a  proof  that no more than 4 squares summed together are required to
       represent any positive integer.

       The command-line may contain positive integers to find the minimum squares of,  they  must
       be  less  than 2147483648 (2^31) on 32-bit systems or less than 9223372036854775808 (2^63)
       on 64-bit systems.  If "+" is appended to the given number, the program counts up from the
       given  number.   If the minimum number of squares is 2, this program displays all possible
       combinations with 2 squares for the given number, otherwise it  just  displays  the  first
       combination it finds.

       If  no  command-line  arguments  are  given,  the programs reads the numbers from standard
       input.
