4.4 Built-in functions

A built-in function is composed of an identifier followed by a pair of parentheses containing an expression-list (the list of its arguments)(6). Here is the list of the built-in functions currently implemented:

build-in-function:

Acos ( expression )

Arc cosine (inverse cosine) of an expression in [-1,1]. Returns a value in [0,Pi].

Asin ( expression )

Arc sine (inverse sine) of an expression in [-1,1]. Returns a value in [-Pi/2,Pi/2].

Atan ( expression )

Arc tangent (inverse tangent) of expression. Returns a value in [-Pi/2,Pi/2].

Atan2 ( expression, expression )

Arc tangent (inverse tangent) of the first expression divided by the second. Returns a value in [-Pi,Pi].

Ceil ( expression )

Rounds expression up to the nearest integer.

Cos ( expression )

Cosine of expression.

Cosh ( expression )

Hyperbolic cosine of expression.

Exp ( expression )

Returns the value of e (the base of natural logarithms) raised to the power of expression.

Fabs ( expression )

Absolute value of expression.

Fmod ( expression, expression )

Remainder of the division of the first expression by the second, with the sign of the first.

Floor ( expression )

Rounds expression down to the nearest integer.

Hypot ( expression, expression )

Returns the square root of the sum of the square of its two arguments.

Log ( expression )

Natural logarithm of expression (expression > 0).

Log10 ( expression )

Base 10 logarithm of expression (expression > 0).

Modulo ( expression, expression )

see Fmod( expression, expression ).

Rand ( expression )

Random number between zero and expression.

Round ( expression )

Rounds expression to the nearest integer.

Sqrt ( expression )

Square root of expression (expression >= 0).

Sin ( expression )

Sine of expression.

Sinh ( expression )

Hyperbolic sine of expression.

Tan ( expression )

Tangent of expression.

Tanh ( expression )

Hyperbolic tangent of expression.
