Re: [xml-dev] ANN: the first million prime numbers in XML format

I have had for years even bigger collections of primes and have used
them to solve Project Eulet problems entirely with XSLT.

The first 50 million primes occupy 27MB.

The format is more convenient for XSLT:

  <xsl:variable name="vcountPrimesLT50M" as="xs:integer"

  <xsl:variable name="vPrimesLT50M" as="xs:integer+"






.  .  .  .  .  .

If someone is interested, please ping me and I will make these files available.

Dimitre Novatchev
Truly great madness cannot be achieved without significant intelligence.
To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk
Never fight an inanimate object
To avoid situations in which you might make mistakes may be the
biggest mistake of all
Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.
You've achieved success in your field when you don't know whether what
you're doing is work or play
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
I finally figured out the only reason to be alive is to enjoy it.
