Old discussion, but I figure I'll throw in my attempt at calculating primes without modules, and using only recursive functions (no loops)
#!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; use 5.010; $DB::deep = 500; $DB::deep = $DB::deep; # Avoids silly 'used only once' warning no warnings "recursion"; # Identify primes between ARG0 and ARG1 my ($x, $y, $re_int, $result); my ($prime, $is_int); $x = $ARGV[0]; $y = $ARGV[1]; $is_int = sub { my $re_int = qr(^-?\d+\z); my ($x) = @_; $x =~ $re_int ? 1 : 0; }; $prime = sub { my ( $x, $y ) = @_; if ( $y > 1 ) { given ($x) { when ( $is_int->( $x / $y ) ) { return 0; } default { return $prime->( $x, $y - 1 ); } } } else { return 1; } }; $result = sub { my ( $x, $y ) = @_; if ( $x <= $y ) { if ( $prime->($x, $x-1) ) { say $x; } $result->( ( $x + 1 ), $y ); } }; $result->($x, $y);

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.
