Code_Seg  SEGMENT                  ; Assume 128K free and AH zero from DOS

ASSUME cs:Code_Seg

ORG 100h
Begin: mov dx,cs ; Get segment 64K forward, insuring
add dh,10h ; past stack
mov es,dx ; Save as buffer segment for 64K spigot
std ; Work backwards for duration
xor di,di ; Buffer start
mov al,2 ; Store word 2's to buffer, with wrap
mov cx,8001h ; leaving DI pointing to last word and
rep stosw ; zeroing CX for main loop entry
mov si,10000 ; Fix at largest 10-power fitting word
mov bp,2466 ; Maximum iteration value with BX slop
jmp SHORT iterloop ; Best BX is 20000, but any ok--also could
; zero BX and make last array word 4
bufloop: inc di ; 2*k+1
div di ; temp <- temp/(2*k+1)
mov bx,dx ; a[k] <- remainder
shr di,1 ; k
mul di ; temp <- k*temp
add di,di ; 2*k
xchg bx,ax ; q <- temp and ready a[k] for store
mov cx,dx
stosw ; Store a[k], decrementing k
iterloop: mov ax,es:[di] ; Fetch next a[k]
mul si ; temp <- a[k]*10000
add ax,bx ; temp <- temp+q
adc dx,cx
test di,di ; Test if k = 0
jne bufloop ; No? Loop

div si ; Output word <- temp/10000
xchg ax,dx ; a[0] <- remainder
stosw ; Store a[0], resetting k to buffer end
xchg ax,dx ; Output word back to AX (0-9999)
mov cl,4 ; CX was zero on inner loop exit
mov bx,10 ; Divisor 10 to extract digits
pushloop: cwd ; Zeroes DX since AX < 32768
div bx
add dl,'0' ; Make remainder ASCII digit
push dx ; Save, since must reverse order
loop pushloop

mov cl,4
poploop: pop dx ; Pop digits in reverse order
mov ah,2
int 21h ; DOS display character DL
loop poploop

dec bp ; Should zero CX:BX, but 10 ok
jne iterloop ; Not about 10K digits yet? Loop

ret ; Exit via int 20h at PSP start
