In fact what you are asking is not just a Delphi specific question
but generic to most if not all Pascals. You can find both the
trivial and a general solution in

Re:Power Operators

Hello

Help.........................

I have just started using  Borland's new language 'DELPHI' and I can't find a
POWER operator. I often need to implement equations such as:
y=x^0.5+x^3+x^1.5...etc

I wrote a power function using the LN and EXP functions, however I
was wondering how I can create a new power operator.

( I can't believe that a modern programming language cannot have a power
operator. )

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Gavin Latsnitsky
