# $RxpI

Real base raised to integer exponent

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

The `$RxpI` function returns the value of its first argument raised to the power of its second argument.
The second argument is initially rounded to the nearest integral value.

## Syntax

%num = $RxpI(x, y)

## Usage notes

- Omitted arguments are set to 0.
- If
`x`equals 0, and |`y`| is less than or equal to 0, an error message is printed and the request is cancelled. - If the result exceeds 7.237 x 10
^{75}, an arithmetic overflow occurs, and`$RxpI`returns the value 0.

## Examples

$rxpi(2, 3) = 2^{3} = 8
$rxpi(.5, 1.4) = $rxpi(.5, 1) = .5
