Prime numbers using the Sieve of Eratosthenes Description This example calculat all prime numbers between 2 and a given upper bound shows the following features:
- working with sets
- nested loops: repeat-until, while, while-do
Further explanation of this example:
'Mosel User Guide', Section 8.3 Working with sets.
