This library is an interface to some functions of the standard C math library. Moreover, it registers a fallback for the binary operator ^ which, when applied to numbers x^y, returns x^y.
The library provides the following functions:
abs acos asin atan ceil cos floor log log10
max min mod sin sqrt tan
Most of them
are only interfaces to the homonymous functions in the C library,
except that, for the trigonometric functions,
all angles are expressed in degrees.
The function max returns the maximum value in a list of numeric arguments. Similarly, min computes the minimum. Both can be used with an unlimited number of arguments.
The function mod is equivalent to the % operator in C.
