Package version:-


Math::Prime::Util version 0.07

A set of utilities related to prime numbers.  These include multiple sieving
methods, is_prime, prime_count, nth_prime, approximations and bounds for
the prime_count and nth prime, next_prime and prev_prime, factoring utilities,
and more.

The default sieving and factoring are intended to be the fastest on CPAN,
including Math::Prime::XS, Math::Prime::FastSieve, and


There are two main types of scripts here:  benchmarks and correctness tests.

The test-* scripts are generally trying to test one part of the module
against another part of the module, an external module, or an external program.
These usually consist of a combination of fixed tests and a long sequence of
testing with random numbers, trying to find things the standard testing might
have missed.
