The infinite product πn=0(1-aqn) plays a part in the theory of basic functions, similar to that of the Gamma function in the theory of ordinary hypergeometric functions, so it is pertinent to enquire how such products can be evaluated numerically. In this paper we will discuss the numerical evaluation of the infinite products using the method of gridded data interpolation.
