their manual is wrong!

pow raises the base value (set in the right inlet) to the power of the 
exponent (set in the left inlet).

Input: float or int
In left inlet: Sets the exponent.
In right inlet: Sets the base value.

Arguments: float or int, Optional. Sets the base value. The default 
value is 0.

Output: float
The base value (from the right inlet) raised to the exponent (from the 
left inlet).

and then they have an example as it really works

[2( [-0.5(
  |  /

but -0.5**2 is actually 0.25.
