What about log_a(X) = log_b(X) / log_b(a)?
then log_2(X) = log_e(X) / log_e(2)
Rodrigo.
Checking the property of log...
set obs 100
g x=_n
g x10=log10(x)
g xe=log(x)
reg x10 xe, noc
di 1/log(10)

Subject: st: log to the base 2
I have been trying to find a function that can calculate the log of a
number to base 2. I can't find one. Am I missing something here or am
I not searching hard enough? Can any one help?
I see log to base 10 and log to base e but what happen to the other bases?
