Prime Number Generator

Difficulty:

PROCESSES:
1. Accept user input for the start and end of the range
2. Use a nested for loop to iterate through the range
3. Inside the inner loop, check if the current number is divisible by any number between 2 and the square root of the current number
4. If no divisor is found, print the current number as a prime number

OUTPUTS: List of prime numbers within the specified range (integers)
