Multiplies two floating point numbers.
function multiplies two numbers and returns the product. If a num
value is a null string or a non-numeric value, FMUL
parses its value as 0 (zero).
You can perform the same operation using the multiplication operator (*). Refer to the Operators
page of this manual.
To perform arithmetic operations on floating point numbers, use the FADD
, and FDIV
functions, or use the standard arithmetic operators.
To perform arithmetic operations on numeric strings, use the SADD
, and SDIV
To perform integer division, use the DIV
function. To perform modulo division, use the MOD
To perform arithmetic operations on corresponding elements of dynamic arrays, use the ADDS
, and MODS
To perform numeric comparison operations, use the SCMP
function, or use the standard comparison operators.
The following examples use the FMUL
function to multiply two floating point numbers:
PRINT FMUL(3.33,78.0); ! returns 259.74
