    Logarithms

    I've tried looking on the net with no luck. I'm developing a small program for a pocket PC using C# MSVS 2005. I want to use the math routine log but It doesn't recognize "log" or "Log". How do I go about calculating the logarithm of a number to any base? There's got to be a routine built in for that. Thanks

    you mean like this
    Code:
    using System;
    
    namespace ConsoleApplication1
    {
        class Program
        {
            static void Main(string[] args)
            {
                double x = 0.5;
    
                double y = Math.Log(x);
                Console.WriteLine(y.ToString());
            }
        }
    }
    All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection,
    except for the problem of too many layers of indirection.
