I wrote this little script earlier tonight that simply prints out a list of integers within a user specified range and identifies which of them are prime. What I want to do but can't seem to find any documentation on is to have the script count the occurrences of the primes and echo a "There were (blank) number of primes within your specified interval." I have no idea where to look for that sort of thing. I don't want an answer but I would like someone to point me in the direction I need to be going in. As always, Thanks. P.S. This does work, I just want to make it 'better'.
