Return the smaller of two floats.

Return the smaller of two ints.

Return the smaller of two uints.

Return the smaller of two shorts.

Return the smaller of two ushorts.

Syntax

double min( vectorbase & vec )

double min( double da, double db )

float min( float fa, float fb )

int min( int ia, int ib )

uint min( uint na, uint nb )

short min( short na, short nb )

ushort min( ushort wa, ushort wb )

Parameters

[input] Origin C vector/dataset object

da
[input] the double value whose minimum is sought
db
[input] the double value whose minimum is sought

fa
[input] the float value whose minimum is sought
fb
[input] the float value whose minimum is sought

ia
[input] the integer value whose minimum is sought
ib
[input] the integer value whose minimum is sought

na
[input] the unsigned integer value whose minimum is sought
nb
[input] the unsigned integer value whose minimum is sought

na
[input] the short value whose minimum is thought
nb
[input] the short value whose minimum is thought

wa
[input] ushort values that compare
wb
[input] ushort values that compare

Return

Returns the minimum value of a data set, or the smaller of the two values supplied

Examples

EX1

// This is a self contained sample program for the function min,
// Its sample data is created at the beginning of the program.
// To run the program, enter the following command in the Script window:
//   min_ex1
// This will return the result like following:
//   Minimum value of Data5_B = 0.097
