PHP bcpowmod

PHP original manual for bcpowmod [ show | php.net ]


(PHP 5, PHP 7)

bcpowmodRaise an arbitrary precision number to another, reduced by a specified modulus


string bcpowmod ( string $base , string $exponent , string $modulus [, int $scale = 0 ] )

Use the fast-exponentiation method to raise base to the power exponent with respect to the modulus modulus.



The base, as an integral string (i.e. the scale has to be zero).


The exponent, as an non-negative, integral string (i.e. the scale has to be zero).


The modulus, as an integral string (i.e. the scale has to be zero).


This optional parameter is used to set the number of digits after the decimal place in the result. If omitted, it will default to the scale set globally with the bcscale() function, or fallback to 0 if this has not been set.

Return Values

Returns the result as a string, or NULL if modulus is 0 or exponent is negative.



Because this method uses the modulus operation, numbers which are not positive integers may give unexpected results.


The following two statements are functionally identical. The bcpowmod() version however, executes in less time and can accept larger parameters.


$b bcmod(bcpow($x$y), $mod);

// $a and $b are equal to each other.
