Functions and Regional Settings

It is important to note that SMath has a very good Multilanguage and Regional Setting support. Therefore, the user should take care about the Regional settings.

NOTE: See the argument and decimal separator character in the Arithemetic palette.

Here is the example of the Regional Settings when comma is the function argument separator and point is the decimal separator


These settings are mainly used in the English part of the wiki.

For many European languages, the SMath could be used with semicolumn as the function argument separator and comma as the decimal separator


There is also a possibility to change the function argument and decimal separators without leaving SMath. You can change it from Tools=>Options=>Interface dialog box. There are Decimal symbol and Arguments separator options.

Built-in Functions

The names of the built in functions depend on the menu option Tools=>Options and the Interface tab. There are two options under Functions style : World and Europe. For instance, function for the inverse cosine is acos in the World style and arccos in the Europe style:




NOTE: The saved files will be opened and the function names will be used according to the chosen style. It is not possible to change the style in the active file - the error (unknown function) will occur.

These are some of the built in functions for SmathStudio.

These functions are not built in but you might need to use them
