The following non-intrinsic math functions can be derived from the intrinsic math functions:
Description
Caché Basic supplies four trigonometric functions: Sin (sine), Cos (cosine), Tan (tangent), and Atn (arctangent); two logarithmic functions: Log (natural e logarithm) and Exp (e exponential); the Sqr (square root) function and the Sgn (sign) function. From these many other functions and constants can be derived.
