Lately I have been interested in prime numbers. One thing that I'd like to know about is if there is any list of (known)primes on the web. I'm looking for a list that does contain 'small' primes(just a couple digits). I've found a list of primes up to 1,000 but I'd like to cheek numbers of up to around 1,000,000. The best list seems to only have 'large' primes. I'm not sure if this is the right board, but you can't go wrong in the lounge! Thanks in advance!

You could always write a quick and dirty prime-detector and set a loop to process primes all day while you go to work/school/whatever and make a list for yourself. Couldn't possibly be more than 50 lines of C.

Well, I tried that. And I made an important discovery, there are only three primes between 1 and one million: 1, 2, and 1,235,364. And yes, the last one is more than one million. I'll try working on it some more.

My favorite prime number is 17. If your list doesn't have that one, you should add it.

Yes, that is a nice prime. I should add it. Along with 27. 27 *should* be a prime. It looks like a prime. It smells like a prime, but nooo its not a prime.

OH, thanks for the helpful post Sneftel. ;)

I really gotta learn html tags. Here's the first 100,000 primes:

Here's the first 5.8 million primes:

Here's an interface that has the first 98 million primes stored(you need to specify a range)

Sorry, but 37 is a much nicer prime. [smile]

Nice website, thanks!!

Now we all have to agree that *every* prime is nice!

You might find the Sieve of Eratosthenes useful (or at least interesting)(or perhaps just very difficult to say 3 times in a row).[smile]
