  At least tell him how to get Pi properly!Unseen on May 24
   *Yes, but the specification said "Take 3.142 for II". I'd say follow the spec.Michael Calkins on May 24
   *A fair approximation of Pi: 355/113Kewbie on May 25
    that's only 7 digitsunclejed613 on Jun 22
     * You don't need to guess! ... PI# = 4 * ATN(1#)Clippy on Jun 22
      and the reason...Michael Calkins on Jun 23
       Unfortunately Qbasic won't allow it to define a CONSTantClippy on Jun 23
        * I don't see why not... C and C++ both allow it...ChronoKitsune on Jun 23
         Because Galleon seems to LIKE ERRORS!Clippy on Jun 23
