In the pursuit of efficiency I have come up with a slightly different implementation: Carl1. In Carl2 I tried to optimize at the expense of a few more characters.

On my WinNT PIII 800Mhz machine with ActiveState 522 both of these are faster than ase's Bit Vector implementation.

Carl1: @p=(1);for(2..10000){if(!$n[$_]){push@p,$_;for($k=$_*$_;$k<=10000; +$n[$k]=1,$k+=$_){}}} Carl2: @p=(1,2);for($_=3;$_<=10000;$_+=2){if(!$n[$_]){push@p,$_;for($k=$_ +*$_;$k<=10000;$n[$k]=1,$k+=$_){}}}
One thing that I found interesting is that for n less than about 10,000, Carl1 is significantly faster than Carl2. The loop control overhead must be pretty significant.

Have fun,
Carl Forde

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
