Calculate Pi!

The advent of digital computers in the 20th century led to an increased rate of new π calculation records. John von Neumann et al. used ENIAC to compute 2037 digits of π in 1949, a calculation that took 70 hours. Additional thousands of decimal places were obtained in the following decades

Now YOU can calculate MILLIONS of decimal places of Pi on your own Mac! Calculate Pi is faster than any other commercial Pi calculation program on the planet. What an extremely geeky pleasure!

What's New in Version 3.01

This update fixes a printing bug (some digits were cut off when DIN A4 paper was selected) - many thanks to Ronny Gläsener for making me aware! :-)

Very cool

My old Macbook Pro made the calculation to 500,000 digits in 0.7 seconds. How cool is that?
