Calculator

PTSource Editor is equiped with a calculator that can evaluate simple expressions. If you want to calculate a simple expression, use the built-in calculator to get the answer quickly.

Usage Examples

Following examples show how to use the built-in calculator:

1. Type in the expression you want to evaluate in the editor. The whole expression should be written in one line.

2. Press Ctrl+Enter to calculate the expression when the caret is in the line of expression.

Example:

3.14 * (2.43 + 0.91) < press Ctrl+Enter when the caret is in the expression line

= 10.487600 < you will get the answer immediately

There are two special variables in the ditor calculator:

$ans .If you want to use the value that was evaluated in the earler step, use a special variable named $ans.

$pi .The value of the variable $pi is 3.1415926535.

Example:

$ans / $pi = 3.338307

The editor supports basic mathematics functions which are very similar to those used in C math library.

Example:

sin(1.2) + atan2(3.2, 4.3) = 1.571809

asin asin(x) - arcsine function returns the arcsine of x in the range -pi/2 to pi/2.

atan atan(x) - arctangent function returns the arctangent of x in the range -pi/2 to pi/2.

atan2 atan2(y, x) - arctangent-and-quadrant function returns the arctangent of y/x, in the range -pi to pi, using the signs of both arguments to determine the quadrant of the return value.

cos cos(x) - cosine function returns the cosine of x (x specified in radians).

sin sin(x) - sine function returns the sine of x (x specified in radians).

log log(x) - natural logarithm function returns the natural logarithm of x. The value of x must be greater than zero.

log10 log10(x) - common logarithm function returns the logarithm base ten of x. The value of x must be greater than zero.

pow pow(x, y) - power function returns x^y. If x is negative, y must be an integer value.
