Pow When given two numbers will return the value of the first to the power of the second.
pow x y will return x^y
pow x .5 will return the square root of x
float x float y float answer set x to 2.0 set y to 5.0 set answer to pow x y ;answer will contain 2^5 which is 32.0
- Sin, cos, tan, pow, log, and abs (particularly pow and log) are extremely slow. Do not use them in script blocks that get executed every frame.
- This function is new in the GECK, and was not available in the TES4 Construction Set. However, it was available through the OBSE script extender.
- Pow can be computed using the FOSE function exp. The line
set result to pow x y
is equivalent to
set result to log x set result to y * result set result to exp result
This is likely to be very slow and should not be used in script blocks executed every frame.
