A superprime is an integer such that all its lefttoright initial segments are prime (e.g. 7331 whose segments are 7, 73, 733, and 7331, all prime).
There is a largest superprime.
Find it.

this is also similar to project euler problem 37 in which primes that are both left and right truncatable are sought.

The code I used for this problem was simply the code from the first part of my solution to the project euler problem.
