Super Pi.

It would be nice and come in handy if we had this as a pet.

A benchmark to test all our Puppy computers.

There is a Linux version, already.

I found this thread, which just gives you an executable you can run on any linux distro.

Did you enter it in command line mode?

Try this:

1) Download the file
2) untar it by clicking on it, selecting "Select all", then "extract"
3) using ROX, go to where the files were untar-ed to
4) right-click in ROX -> Window -> Terminal Here
5) type :
Code:
sh super_pi 20

if that doesn't work, try:
Code:
./pi

6) It should output how long it took

Thanks, I got it to work.

How, for example, would you set it to compute to 2 million digits of accuracy?

2 million in binary is 111101000010010000000 (yes, I used a converter). The number is 21 bits (digits), so you run:
Code:
sh super_pi 21

or
Code:
./pi 21

The 21 is for 21 bits (digits). This will actually convert up to 2097151 digits of accuracy.


If you want to do x digits of accuracy, type your number into "decimal" here, and copy the "binary" into Geany, count the number of digits, then run the command with the number you counted.

If that is all you need, then please edit your first post, and change the tittle to "[FILLED] Super Pi". If you ever need more help, edit it again to "Super Pi - need help" or something like that.
