primegen.go is a Go package that generates prime numbers in order using the Sieve of Atkin instead of the traditional Sieve of Eratosthenes. It is a relatively straightforward port of D. J. Bernstein's original C implementation (http://cr.yp.to/primegen.html) but makes use of Go's concurrency features which should make it faster on multi-core CPUs. Do "go get github.com/jbarham/primegen.go" to install the package. View the package documentation online at http://gopkgdoc.appspot.com/pkg/github.com/jbarham/primegen.go or on the command line by running "go doc github.com/jbarham/primegen.go". The repository includes two additional programs that illustrate usage of the primegen package: 1. primes, which writes prime numbers to standard out 2. primespeed, which prints the time taken to generate the first 50,847,534 prime numbers John Barham email@example.com
