Default New program to crunch continued fraction expansion of constants

Zuuv is an open-source program that can compute the regular continued fraction of a number from it's floating-point representation (a file containing hex or dec digits). Just like y-cruncher, it's features include:
  • Ability to crunch billions of terms in reasonable time
  • Advanced algorithms for log-linear runtime
  • Ability to utilize hard-disk to perform extremely large calculations
  • Ability to automatically save and resume partial computations
  • Multi-threading
Zuuv has been utilized to break world records for computation of regular continued fraction terms of important mathematical constants such as Pi, Euler-Mascheroni etc, all done on a regular PC (i5 9300H, 8GB RAM).

Please free to ask questions and put out suggestions or constructive criticism. Or contact me personally if you are interested in running a sizeable computation.

Disclaimer: The author of this post is also the author of Zuuv, and Zuuv is not affiliated in any way with y-cruncher or A. Yee himself.

PS I am posting this because I thought more of you should know about Zuuv. In case this qualifies as spam, please inform me and I will delete this post.

MODERATOR NOTE: This post started another thread. It was on the same topic as this thread. I merged that thread into this one.

Starting new threads on the same topic as threads you previously started ("multiposting"), is considered bad behavior on this Forum. It recently got another user banned.
