Current Solution

//  Requirement
// Accept a number on command line and print if it is Composite or Prime 
// Works till  39 digits, ...

use std::process;
fn main() {
    //confirm integer is passed as commandline argument
    let mut input_value = std::env::args().nth(1).expect("please input a non-negative integer");
    // Trim the trailing newline
    input_value = input_value.trim_end().to_string();
    //String to Int
    let input_num: u128 = input_value
        .expect("please input a non-negative integer");

    let mut n = 3 as u128;
    let divisor = input_num /2 as u128;

    if input_num % 2 == 0 {
    while n < divisor {  
        if input_num % n == 0 {
        n = n + 2;
    if n >= divisor {
