CALC> 6.70984

ceil(x)

Description The value of x rounded up to the nearest integer.

Arguments Any value x.

Example CALC> y = 5.84
CALC> 5.84

copsize (type)

Description Size of copious entity item.

Arguments Type can be any one of the following constants (either upper or lowercase letters may be used):

  char Character

  uchar unsigned character

  int  Integer

  uint unsigned integer

  short short integer

  ushort unsigned short

  long long integer

  ulong unsigned long

  float Float

  double  double

  tcode copious entity type code

Example s = copsize (long)
(s will be equal to 4)

cos(x)

Description The cosine of the angle x, a value in the range -1 to

Arguments Any angle value, x in degrees.

Example CALC> y = cos(67.3)
CALC> 0.385906

cosh(x)

Description The hyperbolic cosine of the angle x, a value in the range greater than or equal to one.

Arguments Any angle value, x in degrees.

Example CALC> y = cosh(67.3)
CALC> 772905

dms (d, m, s)

By typing dms in the online calculator field, you can enter an angle using the degree, minute, second notation. This will then accept the angle as specified, as 60ths for example, when both dimensioning and creating.

Description Returns a single value in degrees using this formula:

 dms = d + (m/60) + (s/3600)

Arguments Any d, m, or s value.

Example y = dms (23, 2, 55)
y will be equal to 20486

exp(x)

Description Returns the value e to the x of e^x (natural exponential function).

Arguments Any value x.

Note  When the resultant value overflows, the value is set to the largest possible double-precision value.

Example CALC> y = exp(3)
CALC> 20.085537

floor(x)

Because the Online Calculator does not do integer arithmetic by truncation, use floor to approximate integer arithmetic by truncation.

Description The value of x rounded down to the nearest integer.

Arguments Any value x.

Example CALC> y = 5.84
CALC> 5.84
CALC> x = floor(y)
CALC> 5

fmod(x, y)

Description Returns floating point remainder of an integer division, as modulus, x mod y.

Arguments x and y can be any values.

Example x = 55.32
y = fmod (x, 3)
y will be equal to 32

hypot(x,y)

Description The length of the hypotenuse of the triangle, sqrt (x*x + y*y).

Arguments The lengths of the two legs of a right triangle, x and y.

Example CALC> a = 5
