square

.square()

Returns this number taken to the power of 2.

It is essentially the same as just multiplying the number by it's self.

// n is set to 25
n = 5.square()

Advanced Example

Draws lots of squares, in the centre of the screen. Their size is based on the square of the loop.

onEachFrame() do |delta|
    fill( :white )
    
    setColor( :blue, 0.05 )
    
    25.times() do |i|
        size = i.square()
        
        fillRect(
                getScreenWidth()/2, getScreenHeight()/2,
                size, size,
                true
        )
    end
end
