xcall FP_SQRT(result, operand)

Arguments

result

Returned with the result of taking the square root of operand. (a8)

operand

An operand whose square root will be returned. (a8)

Discussion

The FP_SQRT subroutine returns the square root of a floating‑point number.

The following equation is performed:

result = sqrt(operand)

Result and operand are native floating‑point numbers represented as a8 variables.
