Is there a GetMin A B function built into max that I can't find the name for?

Here is how I'm doing it now:

fn getMinVal VarA VarB =
(
try
(
if VarA > VarB then
(
return VarB
)
else
(
return VarA
)
)
catch()
)


But it seems like there should be a built in function for returning a max or min value.

Put the values in an array and sort it.

test = #(10,20)

(sort test)[1]

You can also but them in an array and use the amin and amax commands to get the max or min values.

test = #(10,20)
minVal = amin test

Yes

There is :)


amin val1 val2 .. valN
amax val1 val2 .. valN

-- OR

amin #(val1,val2,..,valN)
amax #(val1,val2,..,valN)


I prefer the latter form :)

Ahhhhhhh it's under array. I knew it had to exist somewhere.


(aMin 25 36)
returns: 25

Perfect!

That should be added as a link to Number Methods and Operators.
