Abstract: The quotientdifference algorithm is applied to a given power series in a modified way, and various continued fractions provided by the algorithm are described in terms of their relationships with the Padé table for the power series. In particular a general continued fraction whose convergents form any chosen combination of horizontal or vertical connected sequences of Padé approximants is introduced.
