Actually, only the first 126 digits of pi are hard-coded in LongFloat library. If you set 'DIGITS' to anything > 126, then pi is calculated to that many digits ("using Werner Huysegom's implementation of Chudnowsky") and stored in the 'FLOATpar' Library Data object for later fast retrieval. For example, the first time you tell LongFloat to give you 1000 digits of pi, it takes 42 seconds. Afterwards, asking for 1000 digits of pi (or less) takes less than a tenth of a second.
I stand corrected. Thank you, Joe!
