Source code bash shell Programming Algorithm

echo "Enter the number"

read a

i=2

z=0

while [ $i -lt $a ]

do

s=`expr $a % $i`

if [ $s -eq $z ]

then

echo "Not Prime"

exit

else

i=`expr $i + 1`

fi

done

echo "Prime number"

OUTPUT Find PRIME NUMBER CS1252 Operating Systems lap

[redhat35@localhost Rhel5]$ sh prime.sh

Enter the number

7

[redhat35@localhost Rhel5]$ sh prime.sh

Enter the number

4
