 Type Command Parallel list processing Group 5 Affected by flags -17 Angular Mode 1 -18 Angular Mode 2

#### Description

The A→∡° command turns a scalar or a suitable component of a composite object into an angle measured in degrees.

In particular, if the component is:

• a scalar, then the number is interpreted as an angle in the current angular mode and converted to degrees;
• a rectangular complex number, nothing happens;
• a polar complex number, then the angular component is converted to degrees;
• an angle, then the angle is converted to degrees;
• a vector, then any angle or polar complex number but not scalars is converted to degrees as per above rules.

#### Compatibility

This command is new in newRPL and does not exist in userRPL.

#### Usage

1:  [ #2h ∡20g (1,2) (3,∡5.3d) ]
……………………………………………………………………………………
A→∡°

will result in

1:  [ #2h ∡18° (1,2) (3,∡5.5°) ]
