PHP 7.2.0 Release Candidate 4 Released

bcpow

(PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7)

bcpowRaise an arbitrary precision number to another

Descrierea

string bcpow ( string $base , string $exponent [, int $scale = 0 ] )

Raise base to the power exponent.

Parametri

base

The base, as a string.

exponent

The exponent, as a string. If the exponent is non-integral, it is truncated. The valid range of the exponent is platform specific, but is at least -2147483648 to 2147483647.

scale

Acest parametru opțional este utilizat pentru a stabili numărul cifrelor după virgulă din rezultat. Dacă este omis, valoarea implicită va fi cea stabilită global cu funcția bcscale(), sau va fi 0 dacă nu a fost stabilită cu ajutorul acestei funcții.

Valorile întoarse

Returns the result as a string.

Istoricul schimbărilor

Versiune Descriere
7.3.0 bcpow() now returns numbers with the requested scale. Formerly, the returned numbers may have omitted trailing decimal zeroes.

Exemple

Example #1 bcpow() example

<?php

echo bcpow('4.2''3'2); // 74.08

?>

Note

Notă:

Before PHP 7.3.0 bcpow() may return a result with fewer digits after the decimal point than the scale parameter would indicate. This only occurs when the result doesn't require all of the precision allowed by the scale. For example:

Example #2 bcpow() scale example

<?php
echo bcpow('5''2'2);     // prints "25", not "25.00"
?>

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.
