primesieve-pas

Pascal bindings for PrimeSieve library.

Repository structure -

  • primesieve.pas - Pascal API unit.
  • docs - API documentation in HTML, LaTex and PDF format. Documentation generated with PasDoc and TeXstudio.
  • examples - Pascal port of original C examples from PrimeSieve, countlets - counts prime tuplets, printlets - prints prime tuplets, totient - prints Euler's totient for range.
  • include - C API v7.7 header files.
  • libprimesieve - v7.7 64bit Windows dynamic libraries.

Requirements

Install primesieve library.

  • Debian, Ubuntu, Raspbian - sudo apt install libprimesieve-dev.
  • MacOS - brew install primesieve.
  • Windows - you can use prebuilt libraries from the folder libprimesieve.
  • Or build library from source.

Linking against libprimesieve v6.x is also possible - build your project with symbol USE_ABI6 defined (Free Pascal compiler command line switch -dUSE_ABI6). ABI changes details - https://github.com/kimwalisch/primesieve/releases/tag/v7.0.

Usage example

program store_primes_in_array;
{$IF Defined(FPC)}
{$MODE Delphi}
{$ENDIF}

{$APPTYPE CONSOLE}
{$POINTERMATH ON}

uses primesieve;

type
  PInt32 = ^Int32;

var
  start, stop, n: UInt64;
  i, size: NativeUInt;
  primes: PInt32;

begin
  start := 0;
  stop := 1000;

  (*  store the primes below 1000  *)
  primes := primesieve_generate_primes(start, stop, size, INT32_PRIMES);

  for i := 0 to size-1 do
    WriteLn(primes[i]);

  primesieve_free(primes);
  n := 1000;

  (*  store the first 1000 primes  *)
  primes := primesieve_generate_n_primes(n, start, INT32_PRIMES);

  for i := 0 to n-1 do
    WriteLn(primes[i]);

  primesieve_free(primes);
end.

Building example

Free Pascal compiler -

$ fpc -B -O2 -CX -XX examples/store_primes_in_array.pas

Embarcadero Delphi compiler -

$ dcc64 -B -$O+ -NSSystem examples/store_primes_in_array.pas
...
$ dcc64 -B -$O+ -NSSystem examples/printlets.pas
$ dcc64 -B -$O+ -NSSystem examples/countlets.pas

Run -

$ time examples/printlets.exe 6 0 1000000
