in reply to pi and some continued fractions

I implemented the spigot algorithm already mentioned in 266 strokes (for a start) but never got it to run in the required 4 seconds. It's plenty fast on my local machine, but not on the codegolf server. Since I couldn't submit the baseline, I never got around to shortening it.

#my sig used to say 'I humbly seek wisdom. '. Now it says:
use strict;
use warnings;
I humbly seek wisdom.
