You may as well write

for($i=$o; $i<=$e; $i++){
print "2 is prime\n" if $o == 2; $o++ if $o % 2; for my $i ( $i=$o; $i<=$e; $i+=2 ){
That way you start on an odd number and account for the only even number which is prime. There is no need to check even numbers after 2.

    $o++ if $o % 2 == 0;

    My criteria for good software:
    1. Does it work?
    2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
