Power2 - A power of 2

' Raise 2 to a power
' the exponent must be in the range [0,31]

Function Power2(ByVal exponent As Long) As Long
    Static res(0 To 31) As Long
    Dim i As Long
    ' rule out errors
    If exponent < 0 Or exponent > 31 Then Err.Raise 5
    ' initialize the array at the first call
    If res(0) = 0 Then
        res(0) = 1
        For i = 1 To 30
            res(i) = res(i - 1) * 2
        ' this is a special case
        res(31) = &H80000000
    End If
    ' return the result
    Power2 = res(exponent)
End Function
