Description


The →∡d command turns a scalar into an angle measured in degrees / minutes / seconds.

The angle is entered / 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.

When a scalar is converted to an angle in degrees / minutes / seconds no check is performed to ensure that the digits at MM and SS positions range from 00 to 59. However addition of 0 (or multiplication by 1) will return a properly normalized angle.

Compatibility


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

Usage


Conversion of 30.751

1:                       30.7510
……………………………………………………………………………………
→∡d

will result in $30° 75^{\prime} 10^{\prime\prime}$.

1:                      ∡30.751d
……………………………………………………………………………………

After multiplication by 1

1:                      ∡30.751d
……………………………………………………………………………………
1 *

the angle is normalized to $31° 15^{\prime} 10^{\prime\prime}$.

1:                     ∡31.151.d
