Sample Input and Output Files

If you want to see the first 1000 digits of Pi in all bases from 2 to 100, and the
list of "first occurrences of 0"
the
input file yields the
output file

If you want to see the first 1000 terms of the sequence of rational numbers that approximate Pi
coming from the fact that the
int(x^(4*n)*(1x)^(4*n),x=0..1);
is very small and can be expressed as A+B*Pi for some rational numbers A and B, then
the
input file yields the
output file

If you want to see the first 1000 terms of the sequence of rational numbers that approximate Pi
that come from the fact that the ratio Andre(n)/(n*Andre(n1)) is very close to Pi/2
where Andre(n) is the number of updown (aka zigzag) permutations,
the
input file yields the
output file
