I am playing with the digits of pi ...
I use 10.1 with 2.4Ghz MacMini, 8 G memory ...
I am up to 300,000,000 digits (820 seconds timing),
(working on 400,000,000 now)
previously, I had tried a billion digits, but I aborted ... it might be because the computer went to sleep (I had not set preferences to not sleep)
... is there a physical limit with my machine? or is it just a matter of waiting a long time?
... I have never used "Export" -- I am assuming that I can Export and then Import the digits (so I don't have to rerun the calculation each time I open the file) I did try Export with 300,000,000 digits but it seemed to take a long time, so I aborted
I am assuming that I am going to run into a wall getting to a billion digits ... any suggestions?
