PHP 5.4.33 Released

bcpow

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

bcpowRaise an arbitrary precision number to another

Descrierea

string bcpow ( string $left_operand , string $right_operand [, int $scale ] )

Raise left_operand to the power right_operand.

Parametri

left_operand

The left operand, as a string.

right_operand

The right operand, as a string.

scale

Acest parametru opțional este utilizat pentru a stabili numărul cifrelor după virgulă din rezultat. De asemenea puteți să stabiliți parametrul global scale pentru toate funcțiile utilizând bcscale().

Valorile întoarse

Returns the result as a string.

Exemple

Example #1 bcpow() example

<?php

echo bcpow('4.2''3'2); // 74.08

?>

Note

Notă:

bcpow() may return a result with fewer digits after the decimal point than the scale parameter would indicate. This only occurs when the result doesn't require all of the precision allowed by the scale. For example:

Example #2 bcpow() scale example

<?php
echo bcpow('5''2'2);     // prints "25", not "25.00"
?>

bcpow() only supports exponents less than or equal to 2^31-1.  Also, bcpow() does not support decimal numbers.  If you have scale set to 0, then the exponent is converted to an interger; otherwise an error is generated.

Well, if bcpow has limits, then this should work:
<?php
function bcpow_($num, $power) {
   
$awnser = "1";
    while (
$power) {
       
$awnser = bcmul($awnser, $num, 100);
       
$power = bcsub($power, "1");
    }
    return
rtrim($awnser, '0.');
}
?>
Just that $power cannot have decimal digits in it.
