    Unless you’re dealing with extremely large values of N and need to do a lot of optimization,
    there’s no way it would take a competent software engineer professional more than about 15-20
    minutes. In fact, I’m surprised that the alleged software engineers haven’t *both* written
    such programs as students. Also, it’s trivial to Google it: http://www.google.com/search?q=prime+generator
