A normal calculating program, given a mathematical expression to evaluate, will want to know in advance how many digits of output are needed (if it even has that option), and if the expression includes more than one successive operation, then rounding errors will build up so that the last few digits are potentially wrong, or perhaps more in some cases (e.g. if significance loss occurs).
spigot, by contrast, does not output any digit of the answer until it's sure that the digit is right.
