MINIMUM

Description

This function returns the element of a dynamic array with the lowest numerical value. It takes the general form: 

MINIMUM(DynArr)

Where  DynArr should evaluate to a dynamic array.

Null dynamic array elements are treated as zero. Non-numeric dynamic array elements are ignored. If the lowest number is less than zero then it is returned with a leading zero, e.g. 0.42

An example of use would be as: 

     VAR_ARR =" "
     FOR I = 2 TO 4
         INS I*3 BEFORE VAR_ARR<-3>
     NEXT I
     CRT MINIMUM(VAR_ARR)

to display 6
