Gentlemen:
I don't think zsh can do this but she does amaze very often so I'll ask:

`My sister is memorizing Euler's number, she's at 200 digits and
``climbing. She wants me to print it off in blocks of four digits. I
``can't find exactly that format online. Now, the formula for the number
``is easy but the output of course is going to be a floating point number
``of 200 and counting digits which of course zsh can't handle. But it
``occurred to me that if the digits could be computed one at a time (as we
``can do for pi), then the output could be treated as a simple string to
``which digits are added indefinitely. I guess this is really a
``mathematical question, strictly speaking, but somebody might know.
