  Sample input:
Acos ( .4 )
  Sample output:
66.42182152

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

Returns the arc cosine, or inverse cosine, of a given number. This operates in radians, just like FileMaker's other trigonometric functions. For the input to be a valid cosine, it should be in the range of -1 to 1.
