NEG()

NEG(), NEGS()

Top  Previous  Next

 

The NEG() function returns the arithmetic inverse of a value. The NEGS() function is similar to NEG() but operates on successive elements of a dynamic array, returning a similarly structured dynamic array of results

 

 

Format

 

NEG(expr)

 

where

 

exprevaluates to a number or a numeric array.

 

 

The NEG() function returns the negative of expr. It is equivalent to -expr.

 

If expr is a numeric array (a dynamic array where all elements are numeric), the NEG() function operates on each element in turn and returns a numeric array with the same structure as expr.

 

 

Example

 

N = NEG(A)

 

This statement finds the arithmetic inverse of A and assigns this to N.
