[pstricks] Dumb question -- asked before?

Minimal example for x^\frac{1}{3} curve:

       \psplot[linewidth=1.15pt,arrows=<->]{-2}{2}{x 1 3 div exp}

Minimal example for parameterised curve:

\def\FuncA{t 1 3 div exp 1 t sub 1 3 div exp}

(by the way, it's GhostScript that reports the error!)

Hi all

I'm sure I've asked this before but I can't seem to find it again in the archives.

I remember some years ago I asked about \psplot doing some cube root function, and it would fail at $x = 0$.

What was the workaround for this?

Reason:  I'm trying to sketch $x^3 + y^3 = 1$ but without \psplotimp which gives of course, a much poorer image than if I were to parameterise it to

$x = t^{\frac{1}{3}}$ and $y = (1- t)^{\frac{1}{3}}$.

Many thanks
