is there any way to generate prime numbers without really testing them? i read the rsa page, but python doesnt have any sort of prime number tester, and the largest number it will do 'for' on is 99,999,999. 'while' doesnt work because python cant divide for life. any suggestions?

how do other people generate the large numbers? how to the prime number generator functions work in java/c++/etc ?

where do you get one of the prime numbers in the first place?

oh yeah! i stumped dr.math. all the replier did was tell me to go to wikipedia
