I decided, while on IDLE, to create a prime number generator. With this, you can find any prime number (as long as your computer is strong enough).

Please add a function to give the total computation time.

@CodeLongAndPros Okay...Does python have a timer function?

@CodeLongAndPros nevermind, I'll use threading. 😁

@codeitfast You can use :

from time import time start = time() sleep(10) elasped = time.time() - start

@CodeLongAndPros Ohhhhh. Fixed it!

Cool, but repl does not run your code on your computer. It runs it on repl's computers.

So even if I have a AMD threadripper, it will run the same speed as a Celeron.

@CodeLongAndPros I actually started this on IDLE. I was trying to find the millionth prime number, but my computer is REALLY slow :( . I decided to try it on repl.it, since, chances are, it is many computers threaded together, so I would think it would be faster.

@CodeLongAndPros what is an AMD threadripper? (I am new to repl.it and most coding aspects) Also, what is a Celeron?

@codeitfast They are processors (CPU's)

@DynamicSquid Wow! how did you find this so quickly? I literally just posted this, and didn't go on the share chat!

@DynamicSquid Also, just wondering, on the chat feature, I noticed that repl.it said I only have 3 projects, and all of them aren't named. Do you have any idea of why that is?

@codeitfast I get bored sometimes, so I just keep refreshing the tab. Also what do you mean by chat feature and unnamed projects?

@DynamicSquid on the talk feature, when they say "+Add a post", they give you options of what repl you want to share. I already shared this one, so I thought it would be possible to add to the chat.

@DynamicSquid but the only options that they gave were things like "TechnoVirusTree" or "RoundInvolvedPackage", which are some of my non-named projects.

@codeitfast you have to search your projects up
