Welcome to the Prime Number in Bash page! Here, you’ll find the source code for this program as well as a description of how the program works.

```
#!/bin/bash
ERROR="Usage: please input a non-negative integer"
# based on https://stackoverflow.com/questions/45392068/check-if-a-number-is-a-prime-in-bash
function is_prime(){
if [[ $1 -eq 2 ]] || [[ $1 -eq 3 ]]; then
return 1 # prime
fi
if [[ $(($1 % 2)) -eq 0 ]] || [[ $(($1 % 3)) -eq 0 ]] || [[ $1 -eq 1 ]]; then
return 0 # not a prime
fi
i=5; w=2
while [[ $((i * i)) -le $1 ]]; do
if [[ $(($1 % i)) -eq 0 ]]; then
return 0 # not a prime
fi
i=$((i + w))
w=$((6 - w))
done
return 1 # prime
}
# validate input number
if [[ -z "${1}" ]]
then
echo "${ERROR}"
exit 1
fi
if ! [[ "${1}" =~ ^[0-9]+$ ]]
then
echo "${ERROR}"
exit 1
fi
# sample usage
is_prime ${1}
if [[ $? -eq 0 ]];
then
echo "composite"
else
echo "prime"

exit 0
