Two factor questions


I have a couple of questions about the factor function, as applied to integers.

1) Does it sort the results by prime (i.e., first column)? All the results I've seen have been sorted, but I notice the manual doesn't specify this behavior. (Unless I'm missing something.)

2) Is it possible to request only the smallest prime factor, rather than a complete factorization?
