Problem with polar_coordinates()
Bonjour,
Windows 10 Pro Rev : 1709 HP Prime virtual calculator Build 2018 1 24 Rev : 13333 iPhone IOS V : 11.2.6 IOS HP Prime V : 1.4.1.13513 Problem with polar_coordinates() (in degree mode) Functions Library extract …  // Conversion RP EXPORT rp(X,Y) BEGIN M0:=polar_coordinates(X,Y); MSGBOX(X) ; MSGBOX(Y) ; MSGBOX(M0) ; RETURN(M0) ; END ;  This function works on iPhone with keyboard input (X, Y and M0 msgboxes are OK). This function does not work in program mode with iPhone, (M0 stay [0,0] with msgbox). The same program work exhaustively with HP Prime virtual calculator on my desktop without any problem. Is there a bug on the new IOS HP Prime or there is a problem with my function. (With old IOS HP Prime version, funtion worked correctly). I have uninstalled and installed IOS HP Prime, switched off an on IOS device several times without change. Thanks a lot for your attention

RE: Problem with polar_coordinates()
I'm not seeing this on a version I just built and am running in the iOS simulator. I don't have any hardware handy to check on.
I tried running the function directly from the HOME screen rp(10,10) [ENTER] for example. I then see a 10 box, 10 box and then [14.14..., .0785...] in a box. The vector is returned. Is that what I should be testing? Anyone else see this issue? TW Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own.

RE: Problem with polar_coordinates()
Bonsoir,
I found an elegant solution from Michael de Estrada : // Conversion PR EXPORT pr(X,Y) BEGIN RETURN[X*COS(Y),X*SIN(Y)]; //RETURN(X*COS(Y),X*SIN(Y)); END; // Conversion RP EXPORT rp(X,Y) BEGIN RETURN[ABS((X,Y)),ARG((X,Y)) MOD 360]; //RETURN(ABS((X,Y)),ARG((X,Y)) MOD 360); END; Thanks a lot for your attention.

RE: Problem with polar_coordinates()
Hello,
I do not think that the mod 360 is a good idea. First, ARG should only return values from 0 to 360. Furthemore, this code is assuming degree mode (which is not a given). I would therefore suggest removing it. Cyrille Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own. I do not speak for HP.

RE: Problem with polar_coordinates()
Bonjour,
Ok, If ARG() returns the correct value (for me), I agree with you to remove "MOD 360" but it does not. Thank you for your comment.

In degree mode, ARG returns angles in the interval (180,180], whereas MOD 360 returns values in the interval [0,360). X<> c Joe

RE: Problem with polar_coordinates()
Hello,
I did not realize that the result was in the 180, 180 range. Then, maybe the mod should be with 2*acos(1)) Cyrille Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own. I do not speak for HP.

RE: Problem with polar_coordinates()
A couple of years ago I requested that atan2 be put on a list for future release enhancements. This would be useful for programs that need the inverse tangent mapped to the interval [0,2*pi). Polar coordinates, and navigation software are typical examples. It's easy to create a standalone program for this, but with all the other tools in the toolbox, atan2 seems like it would be a useful addition.

Note that the linked article has an RPL equivalent, but it is incorrect. It should be \<< R\>C ARG \>>

RE: Problem with polar_coordinates()
Bonjour,
I just checked with the last firmwares update and I found, like you, that the problem disappeared. It is OK now. Thanks a lot for your reply.

Well that is kind of bizarre... :?
