We present a new form of the Machin-like formula for π that can be
generated by using iteration. This form of the Machin-like formula
may be promising for computation of the constant π due to rapidly
increasing integers at each step of the iteration. The computational
test we performed shows that, with an integer k ≥ 17, the Lehmer
measure remains small and practically does not increase after 18 steps
