Primes (This is the contents of the file primes.spl.) Prime Number Computation in Copenhagen. Romeo, a young man of Verona. Juliet, a young woman. Hamlet, a temporary variable from Denmark. The Ghost, a limiting factor (and by a remarkable coincidence also Hamlet's father). Act I: Interview with the other side. Scene I: At the last hour before dawn. [Enter the Ghost and Juliet] The Ghost: You pretty little warm thing! Thou art as prompt as the difference between the square of thyself and your golden hair. Speak your mind. Juliet: Listen to your heart! [Exit the Ghost] [Enter Romeo] Juliet: Thou art as sweet as a sunny summer's day! Act II: Determining divisibility. Scene I: A private conversation. Juliet: Art thou more cunning than the Ghost? Romeo: If so, let us proceed to scene V. [Exit Romeo] [Enter Hamlet] Juliet: You are as villainous as the square root of Romeo! Hamlet: You are as lovely as a red rose. Scene II: Questions and the consequences thereof. Juliet: Am I better than you? Hamlet: If so, let us proceed to scene III. Juliet: Is the remainder of the quotient between Romeo and me as good as nothing? Hamlet: If so, let us proceed to scene IV. Thou art as bold as the sum of thyself and a roman. Juliet: Let us return to scene II. Scene III: Romeo must die! [Exit Hamlet] [Enter Romeo] Juliet: Open your heart. [Exit Juliet] [Enter Hamlet] Romeo: Thou art as rotten as the difference between nothing and the sum of a snotty stinking half-witted hog and a small toad! Speak your mind! [Exit Romeo] [Enter Juliet] Scene IV: One small dog at a time. [Exit Hamlet] [Enter Romeo] Juliet: Thou art as handsome as the sum of thyself and my chihuahua! Let us return to scene I. Scene V: Fin. [Exeunt]
