Left Hand Pointer

Error Code M28

M[UMPS] by Example

Right Hand Pointer

M28, Mathematical function, parameter out of range

Introduced in the 1995 ANSI M[UMPS] language standard.

While the 1995 ANSI M[UMPS] language standard introduces the concept of external calls and external libraries, that standard does not yet define any specific external callable routines.

A future M[UMPS] language standard will contain a set of mathematical functions that are accessible through the external call syntax.

When one of these functions is called with one or more inappopriate parameters, this error will occur.
