I just had to do this to see how it would look like in the code field. This small prime number generator is written in BCX basic, a mildy more modern basic than Qbasic. With BCX basic you can throw in C and assembler code and it would actually compile it. Gives you the familiar comfort of basic, but allows you to venture to C at will.

```
' look at a series of numbers and print out the prime numbers
' prime numbers are divisible only by unity or themselves
' this is BCX basic, a modern successor to Qbasic
Dim A ' defaults to integer
For A = 1 To 100
If IsPrime(A) Then Print A;
Next
Pause ' make console wait
Function IsPrime(Num)
Local X
' make exeptions for unity and 2
If Num = 1 Then Function = True
If Num = 2 Then Function = True
' leave on even numbers
If Mod(Num, 2) = 0 Then Exit Function
For X = 3 To Num - 1 Step 2
If Mod(Num, X) = 0 Then Exit Function
Next X
Function = TRUE ' return true if it's a Prime Number
End Function
```
