Small Basic: Parameter or Return Value Range for Math Function

   

This article describes the ranges of parameters or return values for Small Basic Math functions.  This article is work in progress.  So “N/A” means that the range is not investigated yet.  Please edit this article here if you know any range information about Math functions in Small Basic.

Let’s check out the article’s TOC…

Let’s look at a few sample sections from this article:

Literal Numbers

This limitation is only for literal numbers but not for literal texts.  Following code shows this fact.

1000000000000001
TextWindow.WriteLine(n' 1000000000000000
"1000000000000001"
TextWindow.WriteLine(n' 1000000000000001

Range

-1E15 = -1000000000000000 ≦ literal ≦ 1000000000000000 = 1E15

Sample Program

CSZ796

 

  

Math Functions

In Small Basic, Math object has 20 operations (functions).


Abs

Math.Abs(number)


ArcCos

Math.ArcCos(cosValue)

Range

-1 ≦ cosValue ≦ 1
0 ≦ Math.ArcCos(cosValue) ≦ Math.Pi


ArcSin

Math.ArcSin(sinValue)

Range

-1 ≦ sinValue ≦ 1
-Math.Pi / 2 ≦ Math.ArcSin(sinValue) ≦ Math.Pi / 2
