h$ = BigHypot$(x$, y$ {,maxDigits})

This function returns the hypotenuse sqrt(x * x + y * y).

The optional maxDigits parameter specifies the number of digits to the left of the decimal place to take the calculations to internally. If omitted maxDigits defaults to the current BigMaxDigits setting. The BigFixDecimal command will still control the format of the numbers returned by Big Decimal functions.
