How would I write a program in Perl that would determine if a command line argument is a prime number or not?

Write a small loop that checks the parameter for any remainder of all odd numbers lower than itself except for one.
Something like (pseudocode)
for loopctr in 3.. parameter step 2
if parameter % loopctr = 0
it's not a prime
