Re: Useless information - part three

@Alex 

Sorry to spoil your morning but I believe that the radius of a circle is half of the diameter.

Pi x the diameter is the circumference of the circle if my 1950 schooling is still correct in this metric age.

Yes that is what I meant to say, done that well didn't I?
2 Pi r, and Pi r squared. All that.

Cor round,

Reminds me of Pi.

3.14159265459.

Ratio of a circles radius to its diameter I believe.

Didn't look that up and reminds me of physics.

I think the forumla to calculate it is an Arc Tangent one?


Not quite right...

Ratio of a circles radius to its diameter is 1:2 exactly.

Arctan(1) = Pi / 4

and

1 Million Digits of Pi 😀

When compiled the following Assembly will write "Useless Information" to standard out on an iOS device.

 

.global _start

_start:	mov	X0, #1
	adr	X1, info
	mov	X2, #20
	mov	X16, #4
	svc	#0x80
	mov	0X, #0
	mov	X16, #1
	svc	#0x80

info:	.ascii	"Useless Information\n"
