From the main page of Plouffe's Inverter (Dec 02 2011):
This server is a database of more than 215,000,000 mathematical constants like Pi, E, Catalan or Euler-Mascheroni constant with more than 2 billion digits. Enter a number and the program will find what the number is made of. You can enter a number from 5 to 64 digits
The most recent version of Plouffe's Inverter consists of a Maple program and tables totaling several terabytes of data. Because of its size, this version is not available online, though several earlier versions are.
