I get c=0.55575310427804591244540586938..., and no other value, every time I run the following.


Table[{N[l = RandomReal[{0.04468517, 1}, WorkingPrecision -> 200]],
Table[c = Convergents[l, 100];
l = FromContinuedFraction[c], {n, 1, 50}];
N[l, Floor[30]]}, {m, 1, 100}] // TableForm

Can you help define and name this constant, c, or does it deserve a name?
