COMMENTS

Consider the first, then the first two, then the first three, ..., terms of A000796, i.e., decimal digits of Pi. Look whether the concatenation of a certain number of subsequent digits yields a prime which did not yet occur earlier (and thus necessarily involves the last of the considered digits). If so, add this prime to the sequence.
Contains A005042 as a subsequence.

EXAMPLE

The first digit of the sequence is the prime a(1)=3.
The two first digits, "3.1", yield the prime a(2)=31.
In "3.14" there are no more primes. In "3.141" there is the prime a(3)=41.
In "3.1415" there is the prime a(4)=5.
In "3.14159" we have the primes 314159, 14159, 4159 and 59.
