### A→∡d

#### Synopsis

Convert an angle to degrees / minutes / seconds

#### 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
**rectangular complex number**, nothing happens; - 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

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

#### Usage

1: [ #2h ∡20g (1,2) (3,∡5.5°) ] …………………………………………………………………………………… A→∡d

will result in

1: [ #2h ∡18d (1,2) (3,∡5.3d) ] ……………………………………………………………………………………
