### 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.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

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.
