This includes prime sieving, primality tests, primality proofs, integer factoring, counts / bounds / approximations for primes, nth primes, and twin primes, random prime generation, and much more. The default sieving and factoring are intended to be the fastest on CPAN. Current measurements show it is faster than: Math::Prime::XS Math::Prime::FastSieve Math::Factor::XS Math::Big Math::Big::Factors Math::Factoring Math::Primality Math::Prime::TiedArray Crypt::Primes For non-bignums, it is typically faster than Math::Pari (and doesn't require Pari to be installed). With Math::Prime::Util::GMP installed it is usually faster than Math::Pari for bigints. SYNOPSIS use Math::Prime::Util qw/primes/; # Get a big array reference of many primes my \$aref = primes( 100_000_000 ); # All the primes between 5k and 10k inclusive in a regular array my @primes = @{ primes( 5_000, 10_000 ) }; See the POD module documentation for examples and more information on all the methods included. INSTALLATION To install this module type the following: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install You will need a C compiler compatible with the compiler used to build Perl. Since the routines are meant to be used from Perl, the data types will match the ones used with the Perl you are installing for. This means a 32-bit Perl running on a 64-bit machine will result in a 32-bit library. DEPENDENCIES Perl 5.6.2 or later (5.8 or later is preferred). Bytes::Random::Secure 0.23 or later.
