Discussion

The pow function raises the value specified by expr to the power specified by power (same as yx on a calculator).

Note: Values returned by this command are in real8 (64-bit floating point) precision. These values are displayed in the Command window rounded to 6 decimal digits. However, assignments and comparisons are performed on the full 64-bit value.
