I am wondering about the precision of the

functions like sqrt, ln, exp, and so on.

According to the online documentation, these take

a ValReal argument and return a ValReal result:

e.g.: function sqrt(d: ValReal):ValReal;

What is ValReal? (It would be ideal if these

functions would take arguments of different precision

such as double or extended and return results

in the same precision!)

Basically, I need extended precision versions

of these and a few other math functions, so...

If these functions do not operate in the highest

precision, are there other functions with higher

precision (eg some fortrans have a double-precision

dsqrt, etc)?

I have seen the mpcalc unit, but I was hoping

for something a little faster if possible.

Thank you for any information or suggestions...

Jeff
