PRIMESSTEP1 Sample: Provides a Baseline for the PRIMESSTEP Sample Series

The PRIMESSTEP1 sample is a pure C project that demonstrates the sieve of Eratosthenes to find prime numbers. No .asm files are included in this project. This sample provides a baseline from which to expand to including an .asm file, as demonstrated in the PRIMESSTEP2 sample.

This implementation uses a global array as a principal data structure.
