#### 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) ]
