Chapter 1. Intrinsic Functions


In SIMPOL intrinsic functions are functions that begin with the dot operator, deal with one or more value types, returns a value type, the parameters do not have names and they must all be specified, and there is no associated function object. They begin with a dot in order to ensure that no user-defined function could be named the same so as to allow for future expansion in this area without fear of colliding with existing user-defined function names.
