    I'd like FileMaker to have a built-in calculation function implementing a discrete Fourier transform (DFT). In addition to the applications listed on Wikipedia, the DFT is the basis of countless efficient methods for computing various values useful for analyzing data, like autocorrelations and p-values, and many others. Given the broad range of applications for this function and its common purpose in making computations faster, I think the FileMaker community would benefit from the speed advantage of having this as a built-in function more than relying on math libraries from outside tools or constructed from the other methods available to us with FileMaker's existing tools.
