The program Mathematica will give you as many digits of Pi as you want. To do this, you'd enter N[Pi, 50] and it would give you 50 digits in the numerical expansion of Pi. It can easily handle several thousand digits. If you don't have access to a copy of Mathematica, we can send along a few thousand digits. Other than that, I don't know of any program that continually gives you Pi's digits. -K
