I know there has been lot of discussion on Prime numbers program but I have very specific question. Here is my program: 
# Find the prime numbers

# This is a user input program that lets you decide if a number is a prime or not


import math


num = int(raw_input("Please enter a number: "))

#num = int(math.sqrt(num))



for i in range(2,math.sqrt(num)):

#for i in range(2,num/2):

prime = num%i

if prime == 0.0:

print "It is not a prime"

break

else:

print "It is a prime"

break

1) I get an error saying the following:
Warning (from warnings module):
File "/Users/trillian/Documents/programs:docume nts/python programs/Chapter 4/prime", line 10
for i in range(2,math.sq rt(num)):
DeprecationWarn ing: integer argument expected, got float
Now does range takes ONLY integers or can it take float as well?
2) If you test my program it works well, but it gives "9" as a prime. :(
3) How do I loop such that I do not need to use "break" statement and still it tells me if a number is a prime or not?
Thanks a lot.

It's funny that the docs don't mention anything about this.
For floating point ranges you'll need to use the numpy (I think  i don't have my book handy) module.
Clearly, your alorithm needs to know about more than just the integer parts of the range.
a google search for "python float range" turned up this slew of stuff.

'range()' expects an integer. I modified your code a bit:  import math


def is_prime():

num = int(raw_input("Please enter a number: "))

for i in range(2,int(math.ceil(num**0.5))):

if num % i == 0:

print "%s is not a prime" % (num)

return False

print "%s is a prime" % (num)

return True


is_prime()
Here's another version:  def is_prime(n):

count = 2

while count < n**0.5:

if n % count == 0:

print '%d is a product of %d and %d' % (n, count, n/count)

return False

count += 1

print n, 'is a prime number'

return True

hi, hmm..i think it does. Here . it says "arguments must be plain integers".

Yeah. By "that" I meant "DeprecationWar ning".

right_number = number % 10;

I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bitfields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed.
