primes -- generate primes
primes [-d] [start [stop]]
The primes utility prints primes in ascending order, one per line, starting at or above
start and continuing until, but not including stop. The start value must be at least 0 and
not greater than stop. The stop value must not be greater than 4294967295. The default
value of stop is 4294967295.
When the primes utility is invoked with no arguments, start is read from standard input.
stop is taken to be 4294967295. The start value may be preceded by a single '+'. The start
value is terminated by a non-digit character (such as a newline). The input line must not
be longer than 255 characters. When given the -d argument, primes prints the difference
between the current and the previous prime.
Out of range or invalid input results in an appropriate error message being written to stan-
primes won't get you a world record.
