I've recently started learning to use MaxMSP and have been tasked with working out how to patch different equations, but I've been a little stuck trying to work out the "nth root of X". I have looked around quite extensively and it appears I have to use the [expr] object, but I have no knowledge of how to use it.
So my question is, is there any alternative within Max (v6, if it matters) to work out the "nth Root of X" than [expr]?
If not could would anyone know of any recommended documentation/tutorials on the object, other than the help files supplied? I know I'll need to do a fair bit of reading on the object if it is definitely what I require, as it seems fairly complex from anything I've read so far. If I'm not mistaken it uses language similar to C?
Thanks in advance for any help!
