# bcpow

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

bcpowRaise an arbitrary precision number to another

### Описание

string bcpow ( string \$left_operand , string \$right_operand [, int \$scale ] )

Raise left_operand to the power right_operand .

### Список параметров

left_operand

The left operand, as a string.

right_operand

The right operand, as a string.

scale

This optional parameter is used to set the number of digits after the decimal place in the result. You can also set the global default scale for all functions by using bcscale().

```Well, if bcpow has limits, then this should work: <?php function bcpow_(\$num, \$power) {     \$awnser = "1";     while (\$power) {         \$awnser = bcmul(\$awnser, \$num, 100);         \$power = bcsub(\$power, "1");     }     return rtrim(\$awnser, '0.'); } ?> Just that \$power cannot have decimal digits in it.```

```bcpow() only supports exponents less than or equal to 2^31-1.  Also, bcpow() does not support decimal numbers.  If you have scale set to 0, then the exponent is converted to an interger; otherwise an error is generated. -- Michael Bailey http://www.jinxidoru.com```
