COMMENTS
It is currently not known if this sequence is well defined, i.e. if for all n>=1 there exists an integer v such that a(n) = v. If the sequence is not well defined then the given programs are incorrect as they will get stuck in an infinite loop for some integers. - Peter Luschny, Oct 28 2016

EXAMPLE
a(4)=6 because 4 -> 20 -> 24 -> 44 -> 76 -> 161 -> 199, takes 6 steps to reach a prime.
