I always find it annoying that the only abbrevation I remember by heart is that Dir means Direction, and the rest I have to look up, and as far as I know there isn't a place to do that. I'm usually scrambling through tutorial files and whatever scraps of other files I can find, desperate of finding a function that might contain that abbrevation.
My thought is that we could all together compile a kind of legend here, which we could maybe later make into an article.
This is not a gallup poll, please don't post abbrevations that someone already has mentioned (tip: Ctrl+F search for the one you're about to post).
I'm also IN NO WAY an expert at using the calculator, and I'm sure some of you can relate, so if there is something "special" that needs to be mentioned about the function, please do so.

Two example suggestions on how to do a nice layout for the legend:

Dir - Direction
<Insert comment here, when necessary>

<Insert example here when necessary>


Sqr - Squared (mathematics)
Has to be entered before the function, unlike you would normally do in your average math class.

The distance formula is used as an example below:
(X2 - X1)^2 + (Y2 - Y1)^2
Which, when translated to MMF and used with two objects that we'll call Player and Enemy, becomes this:
Sqr((X( "Enemy" )-X( "Player" )) pow 2+(Y( "Enemy" )-Y( "Player" )) pow 2)

I know it's a bad example since it's already a button, but still


As I said earlier, I am in no way an expert at using the calculator.
Please correct me if I'm wrong about something.
Also, I know that sometimes it can be up to interpretation whether an example
or a comment is needed for a particular abbrevation, so don't bash on each others suggestions.
Only correct or add...

Thanks to Old Man Clayton for sharing the distance formula with me
