Integer base raised to integer exponent

**Note:** Many $functions have been deprecated in favor of Object Oriented
methods. There is currently no direct OO equivalent for the `$IxpI` function.

The `$IxpI` function returns the value of
its first argument (rounded to the nearest integral
value) raised to the power of its second argument (rounded to the nearest
integral value).

## Syntax

%num = $IxpI(x, y)

## Usage notes

- If
`x`equals 0, and`y`is less than or equal to 0, an error message is printed and a 0 is returned. - Results from
`$IxpI`that would have an exponent value greater than +74 (when expressed in standard form) cause an arithmetic overflow error, and they return the value 0.

## Examples

$ixpi(8,2) = 8^{2} = 64
$ixpi(2.4,.5) = $ixpi(2,1) = 2
