What make you think that you are the one who can impose what the scope
of the phrase "GCF" is?
or what such phrase means?
You and the other guy did not put your signatures on your postings
while the author of the following book certainly did. What make you

In his book:
http://assets.cambridge.org/052181/8052/sample/0521818052ws.pdf
The author clearly states what the meaning of the phrase
"Generalized Continued fractions" is all about.

The very particular "Generalized Continued Fractions" developed by
agency of the Rational Mean and shown in my webpages do not bring a
solution for the general pell's equation, and neither I nor my
webpages, nor any posting from mine states that they do such thing.
They only bring a Generalization of Periodical Representation or
high-
order irrational numbers, that is clearly stated in my webpages, even
with numerical samples.

Standard Continued Fractions have so many properties, if you can find
any high-order generalization for any of their properties then you are
free to use
the phrase GENERALIZED CONTINUED FRACTION , because you have found a
very particular generalization os stantard continued fractions,
that's
it. in my case the property is: Periodic
representation of irrational numbers of higher degree.
