The SMUL function performs string multiplication of two base 10-string numbers. It takes the general form:

SMUL(expr1, expr2)


expr1 and expr2 are strings consisting of numeric characters, with either optionally including a decimal part.

The function may be used with numbers that may exceed a valid range with standard arithmetic operators. The PRECISION declaration does not affect the value returned by SMUL

An example of use is as:

A = 243603310027840922
B = 3760

CRT SMUL (0.0000000000000475,3.61)

to display 915948445704681866720 and 0.0000000000001714 to the screen.
