SDL Component Suite - Math1

The unit MATH1 offers several fundamental arithmetic operators and mathematical/logical routines which have not been implemented in Delphi™ 1.0 (e.g. hyperbolic functions, tangens, cotangens, or common logarithm). The unit also contains routines to sort data, to produce different numeric formats, to generate random numbers of special distributions, etc. More details can be found in the online help pages.

The unit MATH1 is part of the SDL Component Suite.
