Running on version 5.3.1.0058. When

Code:
logBASE(16,2)

is executed, it returns 4 as normal. But, when

Code:
int(logBASE(16,2

or

Code:
iPart(logBASE(16,2

they return 3.

It's only 16 as far as I can tell. I would provide screenshots, but I don't have a link cable yet. I ordered one now, so as soon as I get it, I will update. Or someone else can. Either way.
This is not a bug, rather, it is a rounding error.
logBASE(16,2 actually returns 3.999999999999 so int( and iPart( drop it down to 3.

By using round( to fix this error, we can find the true value like this:
Code:
int(round(logBASE(16,2
or
Code:
iPart(round(logBASE(16,2
And get the 4 we wanted.

You can read about the round command Here.
