##### Last updated June 26, 2002

**Version:** 1 |
**Requires:** CF5 |
**Library:** MathLib

**Description:**

This script Calculates the Fibonacci sequence (each integer is the sum of the two previous integers). Note that the function will also calculate the sequence for non-Fibonacci numbers.

**Return Values:**

Returns a comma-delimited list of numeric values.

**Example:**

```
<cfoutput>
#fibcalc(0,1,200)#<BR>
#fibcalc(1,1,200)#
</cfoutput>
```

**Parameters:**

Name | Description | Required |
---|---|---|

x | First number in the Fibonacci sequence. | Yes |
