This program estimates the value of PI by using a well known MonteCarlo Method. To run the simulation, type the number of cycles you want your Palm to use to estimate PI. The "Aristotle algorithm" is also included for comparison The final value may be quite different from the actual value of PI (3.14159). This is due to the fact that the random number generator, is not completely random. We are not responsible for this, so consider this program only for educational - demo purpose, or as a benchmark. Starting from version 0.9 a calculation time tracking is included; MCPI it can be reliably used as benchmark (some reference values will be available in the final 1.0 release).
