[sharing] Newton square root approximation


    Nov 26 2014 | 5:38 pm
    I built a square root function in order to get more of an insight into how numbers work in Max/Msp and Gen.
    What is interesting about it is the difference between the built in square root function and the successive approximation and how the extra floating point values are maintained until the output.
    For some reason we can't upload a .gendsp file directly to the gen forum so I had to put it in a zip. Does anyone know how to get rid of an attachment once it's been uploaded.
