# 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.
