%N 2-adic continued fraction of zero, where a(n) = -2 if n is odd, A006519(n/2) otherwise.

%C Limit of convergents equals zero; only the 6th convergent is indeterminate. Other 2-adic continued fractions of zero are: A118821, A118827, A118830. A006519(n) is the highest power of 2 dividing n; A080277 = partial sums of A038712, where A038712(n) = 2*A006519(n) - 1.
