Here is a problem:
After obtaining the list, click the (say) Prime Number button. This is supposed (I guess) to reverse the order of the primes, but it only does a piecewise job, so clicking again the Prime Number button does NOT reproduce the original order. For example, starting from 2,3,5,7,11,13, we go to the loop 11,13,2,3,5,7 7,5,3,2,13,11. The original order 2,3,5,7,11,13 cannot be recovered any more. This goes for the Index button as well.

Bugs not fixed, Thag. Thag need to learn how to write software.

Program still hangs for some allowed values in entry fields. Limited to 99999? Don't make me laugh.

Have mercy on us.

I enter "4" into the "start at" field and the prime number generator returns these "primes":
4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048, 5096, etc. Then it eventually hangs at 65535.

Is this some kind of joke? Has the developer of this crap heard of beta testing?

And of course you can always remark on the fact that a PNG written in RB weighs in at a megabyte and one written in Cocoa will do the job at 1/10 the size. All that bloat to serve the cross-platform Windoze community, 90% of which don't care about the difference between a prime number and a prime rib.

As previous poster pointed out, 1 is not prime. This is an easy mistake for someone to make, but unacceptable for someone writing a program claiming to generate primes. This program is spreading misinformation under the guise of an educational program.
