The following functions are included by default through the StandardFunctionTable unless otherwise noted. Functions can be included individually by calling jep.addFunction(String, PostfixMathCommandI). All standard function classes are located in the jep.functions package. The BigDecimal functions are kept separate in the jep.bigdecimal.functions package and the string manipulation functions are kept in jep.functions.strings.

Note that you can also add new custom functions.

Polar, constructs a complex number from modulus and argument polar(r, theta) Polar


1 By default functions like sqrt(-1) will return a complex result. These functions have constructors with a flag to control their behaviour for out of range values, if the flag is true, then the function will return Double.NaN for out of range real values. If the flag is false they will return the appropriate complex result.

2 By default functions like acos(2) will return Double.NaN. A constructor is available which sets a flag to make the function return the appropriate complex result for such cases.


String Functions

The following string functions are not included in the standard configuration. They can however be added by loading the StringFunctionSet component using jep.setComponent(new StringFunctionSet()) before parsing expressions. The individual functions can also be added using jep.addFunction().

Description Function Name Class Name
Left left(str, len) Left
Right right(str, len) Right
Middle mid(str, start, len) Mid
Substring substr(str, start, [end]) Substring
Lower Case lower(str) LowerCase
Upper Case upper(str) UpperCase
Length len(str) Length
Trim trim(str) Trim

Optional Functions

These functions are not included in the standard configuration, but can be added using jep.addFunction().

In com.singularsys.jep.misc.functions:

Class Description
LogTwoArg Two argument log function where second argument is the base.
Remainder Calculates the remainder and quotient the arguments. Constructors allow different conventions for remainder to be used.
RoundSF Rounds arguments to a specific number of significant figures.
ToBase Converts numbers to a string in a given base.
FromBase Converts a string in a given base to numbers.
Switch A switch statement. Returns the value of the argument based on the value of the first argument.
SwitchDefault A switch statement with a default value as final argument.
Case A case statement, first argument is test condition, following arguments are in pairs with a test value and corresponding result.
IsNull Tests if the argument is null.
IsNaN Tests if the argument is NaN.
IsInfinite Tests if the argument is infinite.
IsType Test is the argument is of the type specifies in the constructor. E.g. isDouble(x)

In com.singularsys.jep.functions:

Class Description
Identity Returns its argument.
ConstantFunction Returns a constant specified in the constructor. E.g. pi()
