Remarks

var

A numeric single or double variable that is assigned with the SQR of variable source.

source

Example

 

$regfile = "m48def.dat"                                   ' specify the used micro

$crystal = 8000000                                         ' used crystal frequency

$baud = 19200                                               ' use baud rate

$hwstack = 32                                               ' default use 32 for the hardware stack

$swstack = 40                                               ' default use 10 for the SW stack

$framesize = 40                                             ' default use 40 for the frame space

 

 

Dim A As Single

Dim B As Double

A = 9.0

B = 12345678.123

 

A =Sqr(A)

Print A                                                     ' prints 3.0

B = Sqr(b)

Print B
