A Simple Cocoa Algorithm for Exponents

Here's a quick little Cocoa implementation algorithm for when you need to find powers of numbers. I'm assuming you have instances of NSTextField called FirstVariable, toThePowerOf, and result.

- (IBAction)findPower:(id)sender{
float exponent;
exponent = [toThePowerOf floatValue];

float power; //number to be raised to power
power = [firstVariable floatValue];
while (exponent > 1){
power = power * power;
exponent = exponent - 1;
[result setFloatValue:power];
[result setNeedsDisplay:YES];
