26/Feb/93: sqrt(2) to 1 million+ digits.

This was computed on a Convex C240 using Richard Brent's multiple precision 
arithmetic routines (MP), published as algorithm 524 in the March 1978 issue 
of Transactions on Mathematical Software.

Using the MP routines, a base of 10000 was chosen, to make the final decimal
conversion trivial.

The time to compute sqrt(2) was 32293 seconds, and the time to compute
sqrt(2)**2-2 as a check was 31031 seconds. The number is presented as
an integer with 40 digits per line of text.
