## Datatype Functions

### DoubleToShort(X)

Converts the given double value to a *short* value

### DoubleToByte(X)

Converts the given double value to a *byte* value

### DoubleToFloat(X)

Converts the given double value to a *float* value

### DoubleToLong(X)

Converts the given double value to a *long* value

### ToShort(X)

Converts the given value to a *short* value. This function converts any value to a *short* value, thus it is more time consuming than the DoubleToShort function for double values.

### ToByte(X)

Converts the given value to a *byte* value. This function converts any value to a *byte* value, thus it is more time consuming than the DoubleToByte function for double values.

### ToFloat(X)

Converts the given value to a *float* value. This function converts any value to a *float* value, thus it is more time consuming than the DoubleToFloat function for double values.

### ToLong(X)

Converts the given value to a *long* value. This function converts any value to a *long* value, thus it is more time consuming than the DoubleToLong function for double values.

## Encryption Functions

### MD5(String)
