### Prime numbers (a computer continuation)

If you'd like, look at the problem from my post in the Help Me! Forum.
Now, I am looking for algorithm to use in Pascal/Python/whatever to compute those values. I have no knowledge in programming, so help me!

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

### Re: Prime numbers (a computer continuation)

Hi;

How do I set the loops without having known an upper limit?

Following in the footsteps of the guy who already was there will be a good place to start.
