Emirps

November 2, 2010

An emirp is a prime number that is also prime when its digits are reversed, and that is not also a palindrome. For instance, 13 is an emirp because its reversal, 31, is also prime; 23 is not an emirp, even though it is prime, because its reversal, 32, is not prime; and 101 is not an emirp, even though it is prime, because it is a palindrome.

Your task is to enumerate the emirps below a million; you should strive for maximum speed. When you are finished, you are welcome to read or run a suggested solution, or to post your own solution or discuss the exercise in the comments below.
