#### Description

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

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 / minutes / seconds;
• a polar complex number, then the angular component is converted to degrees / minutes / seconds;
• an angle, then the angle is converted to degrees / minutes / seconds;
• a vector, then any angle or polar complex number but not scalars is converted to degrees / minutes / seconds as per above rules.

The angle is displayed as a real number in the format DD.MMSSxxx… where:

• DD expresses the number of degrees;
• MM expresses the number of minutes of arc and ranges from 00 to 59;
• SS expresses the number of seconds of arc and ranges from 00 to 59;
• xxx… expresses the remaining fraction of seconds of arc.

#### Compatibility

A→∡d is specific to newRPL and has no direct equivalent in userRPL.
