    printf("Enter Lower limit :");
    scanf("%d", &lowerlimit);
    
    printf("Enter Upper limit :");
    scanf("%d", &upperlimit);


    printf("Prime numbers between %d and %d : ", lowerlimit, upperlimit);

    while (lowerlimit < upperlimit)
    {
        flag = 0;

        for(index = 2; index <= lowerlimit/2; ++index)
        {
            if(lowerlimit % index == 0)
            {
                flag = 1;
                break;
            }
