const double PI_DIV_2   = 1.5707963267948966192313216916398;
const double PI                = 3.1415926535897932384626433832795;
const double PI_MUL_2 = 6.283185307179586476925286766559;

the ultimate solution!!

You mean ETA, PI, and TAU.

why isn't there nyone backing ETA as the one true constant...?

There is...

...but these people are rare to find, and the idea of eta being the "true" circle constant largely hinges on the argument that the right angle should be the fundamental unit, instead of the area of a unit circle with pi, or the circumference of a unit circle with tau. Which, as you know, I think is silly.

Actually, the "sometimes missing leading 0's" is not a mistake. My program basically took numbers in base 100 and displayed them, and the numbers in question were digits of tau. Leading 0's on numbers seemed to be impossible to display, so I just trailed the previous numbers with 0 and then continued. All the digits are correct and in the right order.

For example:

8125724179
972560696
5068423413

If I'd have done that "optimally" and made 9725606965 the second line, the third line would have a leading 0 (which I couldn't figure out how to display).

Hope it makes sense now!

If no one looks at the source, you could just display the first ~15 digits and just print random numbers after that

What's my calc's name? Convert \$37 to decimal. Look up that element in the periodic table. Then take the abbreviation of that element and you have it!
Look! A slime!    <(^.^)>

#### gameblabla

I did not know that deliberately obfuscating the code was a feature.
Richard Stallman told me otherwise
