Section 10 - Exponential function
To decide what real number is e to the power (N - a real number):
let result be 1.0000;
repeat with X running from 1 to 7:
let temp1 be N to the power X;
let temp2 be the factorial of X;
let temp1 be temp1 real divided by temp2;
let result be result real plus temp1;
decide on result.
To decide what real number is e to the power (N - a number):
let temp be N as a fixed point number;
decide on e to the power temp.
