Putting this all together

Now that you have seen all there is to see about conditionals and loops, it's time to spice things up a little, and see those two examples I anticipated at the beginning of this chapter. We'll mix and match here, so you can see how one can use all these concepts together. Let's start by writing some code to generate a list of prime numbers up to some limit. Please bear in mind that I'm going to write a very inefficient and rudimentary algorithm to detect primes. The important thing for you is to concentrate on those bits in the code that belong to this chapter's subject.

Example 1 – a prime generator

According to Wikipedia:

"A prime number (or a prime) is a natural number greater than 1 that has no positive divisors other ...
