Do you know of a program for the Mac that continually generates
the digits of pi?

Hello there!
There are a couple of things that you might be interested in. 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.
