IN DEVELOPMENT
OpenInsight Development Suite 9.3 will include the following new extended math functions:

_addx (add)
_subx (subtract)
_mulx (multiply)
_divx (divide)

These functions allow you to perform math operations using full precision or a specified precision.

The _addx function adds two numbers. The required precision (number of decimal places) is an optional parameter. The syntax is as follows:

ans = _addx( num1, num2 [, decimalPlaces] )
For example:

a = "10.3456"
b = "4.567"
decimalPlaces = 2

x1 = _addx( a, b, decimalPlaces )
x2 = _addx( a, b ); * // For full precision.

// x1 will return 14.91
// x2 will return 14.9126

The _subx function subtracts two numbers. The required precision (number of decimal places) is an optional parameter. The syntax is as follows:

ans = _subx( num1, num2 [, decimalPlaces] )
For example:

a = "10.3456"
b = "4.567"
decimalPlaces = 2

x1 = _subx( a, b, decimalPlaces )
x2 = _subx( a, b ); * // For full precision.

// x1 will return 5.78
// x2 will return 5.7786

The _mulx function multiplies two numbers. The required precision (number of decimal places) is an optional parameter. The syntax is as follows:

ans = _mulx( num1, num2 [, decimalPlaces] )
For example:

a = "10.3456"
b = "4.567"
decimalPlaces = 2

x1 = _mulx( a, b, decimalPlaces )
x2 = _mulx( a, b ); * // For full precision.

// x1 will return 47.25
// x2 will return 47.2483552

The _divx function divides two numbers. The required precision (number of decimal places) is an optional parameter. The syntax is as follows:

ans = _divx( num1, num2 [, decimalPlaces] )
For example:

a = "10.3456"
b = "4"
decimalPlaces = 4

x1 = _divx( a, b, decimalPlaces )
x2 = _divx( a, b ); * // For full precision.

// x1 will return 2.6140
// x2 will return 2.6140000000000 ...
<padded to 128 decimal places>
