Maximum value of an integer for which factorial can be calculated on a machine

Program to find maximum value of an integer for which factorial can be calculated on a machine, assuming that factorial is stored using basic data type like long long int.

The idea is based on that fact that, in most of the machines, when we cross limit of integer, the values becomes negative.

C

// C program to find maximum value of 
// an integer for which factorial can 
// be calculated on your system
#include <stdio.h>
  
int findMaxValue()
{
    int res = 2;
    long long int fact = 2;
    while (1)
    {
        // when fact crosses its size, 
        // it gives negative value
        if (fact < 0)
            break;
        res++;
        fact = fact * res;
    }
    return res - 1;
}
  
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    printf ("Maximum value of integer : %d ",
                                 findMaxValue());
    return 0;
}

Java

// Java program to find maximum value of 
// an integer for which factorial can be
// calculated on your system
import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
  
class GFG
{
    public static int findMaxValue()
    {
        int res = 2;
        long fact = 2;
        while (true)
        {
            // when fact crosses its size, 
            // it gives negative value
            if (fact < 0)
                break;
            res++;
            fact = fact * res;
        }
        return res - 1;
    }
  
    // Driver Code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        System.out.println("Maximum value of"+
                                 " integer "
                              findMaxValue());
    }
}

C#

// C# program to find maximum value of 
// an integer for which factorial can 
// be calculated on your system
using System;
  
class GFG
{
    public static int findMaxValue()
    {
        int res = 2;
        long fact = 2;
        while (true)
        {
            // when fact crosses its size, 
            // it gives negative value
            if (fact < 0)
                break;
            res++;
            fact = fact * res;
        }
        return res - 1;
    }
  
    // Driver Code
    public static void Main()
    {
        Console.Write("Maximum value of"+
                            " integer "
                         findMaxValue());
    }
}

PHP

<?php
// PHP program to find maximum 
// value of an integer for which 
// factorial can be calculated
// on your system
function findMaxValue()
{
    $res = 2;
    $fact = 2;
    $pos = -1;
    while (true)
    {
        // when fact crosses its size, 
        // it gives negative value
        $mystring = $fact;
        $pos = strpos($mystring, 'E');
      
        if ($pos > 0)
            break;
        $res++;
        $fact = $fact * $res;
    }
    return $res - 1;
}
  
// Driver Code
echo "Maximum value of"
           " integer "
         findMaxValue();

?>

Output :

Maximum value of integer : 20
