## Main Question or Discussion Point

x=0

y = raw_input("""Up to what number would you like to locate primes?: """)

for i in range(int(y)):

x = x + 1

if x%2 and x%3 and x%5 and x%7:

print x, '--> PRIME'

elif x==2 or x==3 or x==5 or x==7:

print x, '--> PRIME'

elif x==1:

print x

else:

print x

I've been on break for the last week and a half and I thought I would spend my time learning Python. 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'.
