EXP()Calculate e**x ------------------------------------------------------------------------------SyntaxEXP(<nExponent>) --> nAntilogarithmArguments<nExponent>is the natural logarithm for which a numeric value is to be calculated.ReturnsEXP() returns a numeric value that is equivalent to the value e raised to the specified power.DescriptionEXP() is a mathematical function that calculates the value, y, (the antilogarithm) of the following equation,e**x = ywhere e is the base of natural logarithms (2.71828...) and x is <nExponent>. The maximum value of <nExponent> is 45 before a numeric overflow occurs. EXP() and LOG() are inverse functions. The number of decimal places displayed is determined solely by SET DECIMALS regardless of the current SET FIXED value.Examples.This example demonstrates several invocations of EXP(): ? EXP(1) // Result: 2.72 SET DECIMALS TO 10 ? EXP(1) // Result: 2.7182818285 ? LOG(EXP(1)) // Result: 1.0000000000FilesLibrary is CLIPPER.LIB.
