I wrote code to calculate the 1000th prime number: http://dpaste.com/hold/640512/ . It works, but upon reviewing, I realized I do not know why. Specifically, the function that's determines prime-ness at line 20 is not in the "while loop" (lines 23-29). What is causing or commanding "x + 2" in lines 25 or 29 to be fed back into the function at line 20? It also works if I put the function in after line 29 as a recursion http://dpaste.com/hold/640514/ . Would appreciate if someone could explain the mechanics of what's going on. Thanks a lot.
