nope! they all look prime to me!
i like it, i'm gonna use it to explain programming loops to a mathmatician friend. i took the liberty to re-arrange a touch...

sub isPrime { my $number = shift; my $sqrt = sqrt $number; my $d = 2; while (1) { return 0 if ( $number % $d == 0 ); return 1 if ( $d > $sqrt ); $d++; } }
