hey i found out the vale of pie in a special way.
i think it is interesting
i am expecting some comments on this.

#include<iostream.h>
#include<conio.h>
void main()
{
	clrscr();
	int n[10000];
	int i,p=1,c=1;
	for (i=0;i<10000;i++)
	{  if(p<7)
	   p=p*10;
	   n[i]=char(p/7);
	   p=p%7;
	}
	cout<<3<<" . ";
	for (i=0;i<10000;i++,c++)
	{   if(c==1800)
	    {   getch();
		clrscr();
		c=1;
	    }
	    cout<<n[i];
	}
	getch();
}

Also: #include<iostream.h> -- old header that shouldn't be used for the past umpteen years #include<conio.h> -- header that should not be used as it's not portable void main() -- main() has NEVER been a void, always an int, see this clrscr(); -- useless function only defined in 1 old compiler, no other compiler has it. getch(); -- another function that should be avoided, only a couple compilers have defined it.

"void main() -- main() has NEVER been a void, always an int, see this"

But I beg to differ a bit - once upon a time main( ) was a void function. Read K&R recently? The earliest C++ book I have, circa 1993, uses the form

main ( )
{
   //code here
}

I agree, it is now an incorrect form, and the reasons given in the several articles linked at the gidnetwork article are quite extensive. But let's not go about rewriting history. That's for the politicians.

not really. in C, a missing type defaults to an 'int'. and control reaching the end of a non-void function is at most a warning, not an error. even in the oldest K&R, you would not see

void main ( )
{
   //code here
}

here is an example:

foo()
{ return 5 ; } /* warning: return type defaults to `int' */

void bar()
{ return 5 ; } /* warning: `return' with a value, in function returning void */

int foobar() {}

main() /* warning: return type defaults to `int' */
{
  int (*pfn1)() = &foo ;
  void (*pfn2)() = &foo ; /* warning: initialization from incompatible pointer type */
}
