## Introduction: Calculate Pi With Batch File

Today I will show you how to calculate pi with a batch file
Note I did not make this file :( I wish I had though.

## Step 1: The Code

@if defined talk (echo on) else (echo off)
setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion
echo.pi.bat - By Don Cross - http://cosinekitty.com

echo.

REM Added time stamps and display of formula.

REM Batch file for calculating pi

That is the code save it as pi.bat or anything you want .bat

## Step 2: More Batch Fun

Now you can calculate pi with a batch file but view my other instructables to see more cool batch codes here
