I have this code in my 2D C++ game to find the distance between the mouse and a point on the screen (myp_-scrl_off):
intholder[1] = sqrt( ( (mousex - (mypx-scrlxoff))^2 + (mousey - (mypy-scrlyoff))^2 ) ); 
It gives me messed up numbers. I punched hypothetical numbers into my calculator and it worked (I think). It must be the code...what''s wrong?

UhOh, Zealous is getting sloppy in his old age =)

*grins* - j/k. I didn''t even KNOW that ''^'' didn''t work for powers, and you''ve helped me plenty of times.
