# gmp_nextprime

(PHP 5 >= 5.2.0, PHP 7, PHP 8)

gmp_nextprimeFind next prime number

### Beschreibung

gmp_nextprime ( GMP|int|string `\$num` ) : GMP

Find next prime number

### Parameter-Liste

`num`

Ein GMP-Object, ein Integer oder eine numeriche Zeichenkette.

### Rückgabewerte

Return the next prime number greater than `num`, as a GMP number.

### Beispiele

Beispiel #1 gmp_nextprime() example

``` <?php\$prime1 = gmp_nextprime(10); // next prime number greater than 10\$prime2 = gmp_nextprime(-1000); // next prime number greater than -1000echo gmp_strval(\$prime1) . "\n";echo gmp_strval(\$prime2) . "\n";?> ```

Das oben gezeigte Beispiel erzeugt folgende Ausgabe:

```11
2
```

### Anmerkungen

Hinweis:

This function uses a probabilistic algorithm to identify primes and chances to get a composite number are extremely small. add a note

``` Negative numbers N always have at least four factors: N*1=N and abs(N)*-1=N. Therefore, even if "natural number" weren't in the definition of a prime (which it is), no negative number would ever qualify. Therefore, the next-largest prime number to any negative number is always 2. ```

``` Prime numbers are positive, non-zero numbers that have exactly two factors. No more, no less. So testing negative numbers doesn't really make any sense. ```

``` It seems gmp_nextprime on negative numbers always returns 2. ```
