Added two new maths routines to the Code Snippets Database
Two new routines have been added to the Mathematics category of the Code Snippets database. The first, Pow, raises an integer to value to a non-negative integer power. The second snip is named SAR and performs an arithmetic right shift operation on an integer (Pascal's 'shr' is a logical left shift operator). Don't forget that new snippets now don't display in the old Code Snippets online viewer - you need the CodeSnip program or the new viewer at http://snippets.delphidabbler.com/cs to see them.

CodeSnip v4.3.0 has just been released. There are three main new features. (1) The directory used to store user-defined snippets database can now be changed. You can use this to place the database in a folder that will be backed up, for example Dropbox or GoogleDrive. (2) The default RTL namespaces can now be configured when test compiling with Delphi XE2 and XE3 and (3) Custom syntax highlighters can now be saved with a unique name for later re-use.

Three new fraction related snippets added to Code Snippets Database
Three new routines for working with fractions have been added to the Code Snippets Database. NormaliseFractionSize ensures that the numerator of a fraction carries the sign while the denominator is always positive. The remaining two routines are for formatting a fraction as a string. FractionToStr formats a given numerator and denominator while FractionToStrEx does the same thing but also gives the option of normalising the fraction's sign.
