Off topic, but anyone interested in the last digit of primes should search for "Chebychev bias", and especially the paper of Rubinstein and Sarnak on this topic. Very short summary: it's much more complicated than one might think...

And if you want to do numerical experiments on this type of questions, the right tool for the job is not a shell-scripting language. (Hint: Pari/GP).
