NAME
       openssl-prime, prime - compute prime numbers

SYNOPSIS
       openssl prime [-help] [-hex] [-generate]	[-bits]	[-safe]	[-checks]
       [number...]

DESCRIPTION
       The prime command checks	if the specified numbers are prime.

       If no numbers are given on the command line, the	-generate flag should
       be used to generate primes according to the requirements	specified by
       the rest	of the flags.

OPTIONS
       [-help]
	   Display an option summary.

       [-hex]
	   Generate hex	output.

       [-generate]
	   Generate a prime number.

       [-bits num]
	   Generate a prime with num bits.

       [-safe]
	   When	used with -generate, generates a "safe"	prime. If the number
	   generated is	n, then	check that (n-1)/2 is also prime.

       [-checks	num]
	   Perform the checks num times	to see that the	generated number is
	   prime.  The default is 20.
