This kata confuses me a lot. Why is it forcing us to not use if statements to solve this problem? Using switch...case function throws out an error to the compiler which is not a best practice and shouldn't teach beginners to do it like that.
Haha why would this answer be on here if it's not a solution?
??? returning reference to stack variable ???
This function is not an error handler nor is it designed to scale.
This is neither clever, nor good practice. It might work for the given problem but every addition to this code will break it or force the person to rewrite it the normal way. -rep
Neat, didn't know you could do that - read the docs!
Hey John, funny I came on here as I noticed some of the solutions didn't account for when the triple and the double are different, and I see you already caught it. Nice solution by the way.
Test cases (that aren't the sample ones) are only editable in Ruby right now (the others are locked). But nice catch.
I am noticing this same problem with python kata. I am passing the 4 examples and all basic tests:
And, passing about 4 - 8 random tests. However other random tests between ranges of about 500 - 1000, I am failing. There are no timeout issues, my algorithm simply returns the wrong number of primes. Strange how I'm passing some tests yet failing others despite their ranges being within the same numbers?
500 - 1000
UPDATE: I ended up passing this one, without changing my code, similar to the above user, Cptnprice.
I suggest adding a test that has different repeated numbers for both input cases.
num1 = 9875222143465
num2 = 24236884
I don't believe these cases exists because I built code to return True (i.e. 1) for these cases, and didn't realize it was wrong until my code passed all tests, I submitted it, and saw the other solutions didn't account for such cases.

I added a more clear description and 1 example test... Also added go translation. Can you approve the updates?
I updated description to be more clear on what exactly the return type and string should be since many people have noticed the description with "hello world!" to be confusing. I also added a go lang translation. (Suggestion tag means suggested edits)
