Descriptionnormal versions: Yi = sqrt( Xi )
expanded versions: Yi = C * sqrt( A*Xi+B )

The "unprotected" versions (prefix VFu_,   VFux_, etc.) do not perform any error handling, which makes them much faster (up to 350% for VFux_sqrt) than the standard versions. On the other hand, any negative input number may lead to an uncontrolled programme crash. Input numbers near the underflow limit may lead to a result of 0. Apart from allowing no negative input numbers, the "unprotected" expanded version (prefix VFux_) also requires that neither the product A*Xi nor the sum A*Xi+B may overflow.

Error handlingDOMAIN errors occur if, in the real-number versions, the square root of a negative numbers is requested; NAN ("not-a-number") is the default result in this case.
Return valueFALSE (0), if no error occurred, otherwise TRUE (non-zero)
