Post Fast continued fraction cruncher

Zuuv is a program that can compute the regular continued fraction of a number from it's floating-point representation (a file containing hex or dec digits). It features log-linear runtime, disk-based computations (for large computations), fault tolerance, and basic multi-threading.

Zuuv can easily be used to break world records for terms of continued fractions of constants like Pi, Euler-Mascheroni etc. even on regular PCs with enough dedication. For example, Zuuv took four hours on my poor Intel i5 9th gen laptop to churn out 2.4 billion terms of Euler-mascheroni constant's continued fraction (the world record is just ~4.8 billion)

I just released the first alpha version of Zuuv yesterday, so feedback would be much appreciated. Here's the GitHub :)
