( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

That's very nice. I might squirrel that way for an OPC contest entry. I once played around with a polynomial expansion, but after many hours CPU time the code got as far as 3.14159264

0: #! /usr/bin/perl -lw 1: 2: use strict; 3: 4: my $pi = do{ 5: my $w = 6*do { my $y=0; $y+=((sub { eval join(' 6: +', map{ eval eval join('/',$_[0], do{local $"= 7: "+";eval "@{[($_)x$_]}"}) } $_[0]+$_[1]*$_[2].. 8: $_[2]*($_[1]+$_[0]))}, sub { eval join('+', map 9: {eval eval join('/',$_[0], do{local $"="*";eval 10: "@{[$_,$_]}"}) } $_[0]+$_[1]*$_[2] ..$_[2]*($_[ 11: 1]+ $_[0]) ) })[$_>10])->(1,$_,100) foreach(0.. 12: 1000000); $y}; my $y=(1+$w/1)/2; $y=($y+$w/$y)/ 13: 2 foreach(0..100);$y}; 14: 15: print $pi;

Plus it chewed up core like crazy....

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
