undocumented functions in Vee

Question asked by VRFuser on Jul 27, 1997

     The are a number of undocumented functions that can be identified in
     veerun40.dll using a binary file editor.  These are internal functions
     used by HP VEE and mainly concern data type conversions - such as the
     asInt32() function you identified.  The effect of these internal
     functions should be available using standard VEE functions.  For
     example, rather than calling the function asInt32(), use a
     pass-through formula such as the following and set the input A pin
     Required Type to Int32:
    
    
        +--------------------+
        |--------------------|
        | A | A     | Result |
        |--------------------|
        +--------------------+
    
    
     Use of undocumented internal functions should be avoided as there is
     no guarantee that these functions will always be available or will
     always work as expected.
    
     In addition to the documented constant PI, the following constants are
     undocumented (and their use is discouraged):
    
     MAXINT16
     MAXSHORT
     MININT16
     MAXINT32
     MAXLONG
     MAXINT
     MININT32
     MININT
    
     Finally, use of the internal constant XYZZY will generate an error
     popup that will only make sense to those who know what XYZZY is...

Hi all,

I found a few month ago, a function named "asInt32" which is not documented
anywhere. So, I would like to know if there are others hidden functions in
Vee and why they are not documented.
Thank you very much.
