# Clip

 Clip[x]gives x clipped to be between and . Clip[x, {min, max}]gives x for min≤x≤max, min for xmax. Clip[x, {min, max}, {vmin, vmax}]gives vmin for xmax.
• Clip[x] is effectively equivalent to Piecewise[{{-1, x<-1}, {+1, x>+1}}, x].
• The vi, as well as other arguments of Clip, need not be numbers.
• For exact numeric quantities, Clip internally uses numerical approximations to establish its result. This process can be affected by the setting of the global variable \$MaxExtraPrecision.
