Trigonometric Functions in Nasal

Postby omega95 » Thu Feb 02, 2012 2:40 pm

Hey, I'm working on a TCAS and Navigation Display for the 787 (it's quite different from 747 and 777, so I need to make a new one) and to calculate some angles fr the vnav altitude graph, I need to use a few trig functions. How do I use them in nasal scripts?

I'll just need some simple functions like sin, cos, tan, arcsin, arccos and arctan.

Thanks a lot!

These functions can be found in the "math" namespace:

Math Library

math.sin(number)
Returns the sine of the single argument
math.cos(number)
Returns the cosine of the single argument
math.exp(number)
Returns e (Euler's constant) raised to the power specified by the single argument
math.ln(number)
Returns the natural logarithm of the single argument.
math.sqrt(number)
Returns the square root of the single argument.
math.atan2(x, y)
Returns the arctangent of y/x, with the correct sign for the quadrant. Wraps the ANSI C function of the same name.
math.e
Euler's constant: 2.7182818284590452354
math.pi
Pi: 3.14159265358979323846
