Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Returns the inverse error function of x (commonly represented as erfinv(x) in other programming environments). The calculation happens by means of a Taylor/Maclaurin series expansion. The coefficients for the terms of the series are memoized in variables to improve performance in repeated calls to the function within the same local scope.
