( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
eisenstein's code is genius, to say the least. I found a different way of the sieve method, and am wondering which is more efficient. Thanks!
! usr/bin/perl -w use strict; sub prime{ my (@primes,%n); my $n=shift; foreach my $r(2..$n){ $n{$r}=1; } foreach my $x(2..int(sqrt($n))){ if($n{$x}){ my $a=2*$x; while ($a <= $n){ $n{$a}=undef; $a=$a+$x; } } } foreach my $x(2..$n){ if($n{$x}){ push( @primes, $x); } } return @primes; } #find to 100 print join ',',prime(100);

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible editor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
