-menu and text-setting and calculating from 16K to 16M of digits of pi
-manual stop calculating from menu-executing up to 4 instances of the program, from different folders, at the same time (it is useful to test a multi-core CPU)
-on a dual-core platform, obtaining similar times executing one or two istances of the program at the same time (optimal use of a dual-core CPU)
What does not
Setting 32M of digits of pi usually doesn't work (under MS Windows XP it always works).
What was not tested
Executing various instances of the program at the same time on a CPU with more than two cores.
I tested especially: -1 instance of 1MByte (1MByte x 1) -2 instances of 1MByte (1MByte x 2) -2 instances of 16MByte (16MByte x 2) on Wine and on MS Windows XP, obtaining similar times (:O).
