# MinValue

Return smallest value in array

## Declaration

Source position: math.pp line 484

 function MinValue( const data: array of Single ):Single;function MinValue( const data: PSingle; const N: Integer ):Single;function MinValue( const data: array of Double ):Double;function MinValue( const data: PDouble; const N: Integer ):Double;function MinValue( const data: array of Extended ):Extended;function MinValue( const data: PExtended; const N: Integer ):Extended;function MinValue( const data: array of Integer ):Integer;function MinValue( const Data: PInteger; const N: Integer ):Integer;

## Description

Minvalue returns the smallest value in the data array with integer or float values. The return value has the same type as the elements of the array.

The third and fourth forms accept a pointer to an array of N integer or float values.

## Errors

None.

 maxIntValue Return largest element in integer array maxvalue Return largest value in array minIntValue Return smallest value in integer array

## Example

```program Example31;

{ Program to demonstrate the MinValue function. }

{ Make sure integer is 32 bit}
{\$mode objfpc}

uses math;

var i:1..100;
f_array:array[1..100] of Float;
i_array:array[1..100] of Integer;
Pf_array:Pfloat;
PI_array:Pinteger;

begin
randomize;

Pf_array:=@f_array[1];
Pi_array:=@i_array[1];

for i:=low(f_array) to high(f_array) do
f_array[i]:=(random-random)*100;
for i:=low(i_array) to high(i_array) do
i_array[i]:=random(I)-random(100);

Writeln('Min Float       : ',MinValue(f_array):8:4);
Writeln('Min Float   (b) : ',MinValue(Pf_array,100):8:4);
Writeln('Min Integer     : ',MinValue(i_array):8);
Writeln('Min Integer (b) : ',MinValue(Pi_array,100):8);
end.
