Lesson 37. Capstone: Building a prime-number library

This capstone covers

  • Building a new project by using stack
  • Writing basic library functions for working with prime numbers
  • Using stack test and QuickCheck to check for bugs as you go
  • Refactoring code to fix errors
  • Adding new functions and tests to your project as you go

So far in this unit, you’ve focused on one problem: creating a program for working with palindromes. For this capstone, you’ll be reiterating over all the work you’ve done creating modules and learning about stack with a new problem. This time you’ll be working on creating a library to work with prime numbers. You’ll focus on three essential problems:

  • Listing out primes less than a specified number
  • Determining whether ...
