NAME

     primes — generate primes

SYNOPSIS

     primes [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 non-digit character (such as a newline).  The input line must not
     be longer than 255 characters.

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.
