Prime Number Program (Fun)

Hi,

I was just wondering if anyone has, or knows where to download a prime number finder program. I would like a fairly simple bash program, and also I would like one that could take advantage of multiple processors. I have 500 cores I can use, and would like to take advantage of them using a prime number finder.

Thanks

Take your 500 cores and join PrimGrid. You will have fun, you will be using the most advanced prime number software on the planet, and you won't be rediscovering primes that are already known. PrimGrid has published all of the consecutive primes up to 210,000,000,000. Compressed, the list requires 6 DVD's. Finding consecutive primes is only one of the many projects they have. With 500 cores you should make the leader board easily.

Thanks! I didn't realize people were finding these numbers on personal computers, I guess I may make the leader board considering each core has 4 GB of memory
