@naraku, it's close to pi/2.

@Ispil, does that have any reason to converge to (a ratioal function of) pi, or did you just write a random way to get 3.1415 ?

Sorry about that, there was an extra square root in there. There should be a total of 9, not 10, with the last being the square root of 2+1. As for why it converges to pi, it is a variation of Viéte's formula, which can be manipulated into an approximation of pi. There, I simply posted a version of Viéte's formual when n (a particular variable in the function) is 8.

It is C89. If your compiler can't handle it, your compiler is non-standard.

Also, I still seem to have not learned that no one will

I'm not bothering to post a link this time. Instead, I'm going to get a mirror and eat some delicious apple pi.

@Duoas the link you provided was to the source file identical to that in your post, it explains nothing.

L B, when did you first join, I estimate : 4 years, 4 days, 4 hours, 4 minutes, 4 seconds ago.

Austin J said that everyone was reported. Was he just misreading something? |

I'm not sure if this specific thread was affected, but I remember spoonlicker had a brief reporting frenzy on here -- and the admin must've cleared the reports since then.
