PRIMES(6) Games Manual PRIMES(6)
NAME
primes  generate primes
SYNOPSIS
primes [d] [start [stop]]
DESCRIPTION
The primes utility prints primes in ascending order, one per line,
starting at or above start and continuing until, but not including stop.
The start value must be at least 0 and not greater than stop. The stop
value must not be greater than 4294967295. The default value of stop is
4294967295.
When the primes utility is invoked with no arguments, start is read from
standard input. stop is taken to be 4294967295. The start value may be
preceded by a single `+'. The start value is terminated by a nondigit
character (such as a newline). The input line must not be longer than
255 characters. When given the d argument, primes prints the difference
between the current and the previous prime.
DIAGNOSTICS
Out of range or invalid input results in an appropriate error message
being written to standard error.
BUGS
primes won't get you a world record.
