        Please split your lines.

        Configure your web server so that the content-type of
        the log files (*.log, I guess) is text/plain.

        And don't even think just prefixing all lines with <br>
        would be enough. Think of a log line that says "<foo ".

double a,b=4,c;main(){for(;++a<2e6;c-=(b=-b)/a++);printf("%f\n",c);}
