#### Topic: arbitrary math root (cube, 4th ...5th etc)

Is there anything built in (or otherwise I welcome clever programming solutions), to

find an arbitrary root ?

I see there is Math::sqrt and Math:log/log10 .. and I've done some googling and have found ways of "building" a 'root' function using them, but I haven't been able to get it to work.

Specficially I'm trying to calc the 12th root of x... the application being a little prog to calculate guitar fret positions (if you were building a guitar ..... I'm not, .. but I have a couple of guitars and am curious about checking their specs.
