precision and contfrac()

Brest, le mardi 8 octobre

Hi, I wonder how I should set the precision \p in order to
have n exact terms in the continued fraction expansion of
sqrt(x) (x being exact).

For instance, what precision is needed in order to be sure that I
have 500 exact terms ? 2,000 ? 10,000 ?
