Full Version: Deg Min Sec question
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
How do you assign an angle in degrees, minutes, seconds to a variable?

Code:
```LOCAL aa,bb; EXPORT AngleCalcs() BEGIN   aa:=EXPR("25°15'00"");   bb:=aa + EXPR("7°12'13"");   PRINT();   PRINT("aa="+aa);   PRINT("bb="+bb); END;```
I think you don't have the correct unicode characters for min and sec. Try with: 25°15′00″ and 7°12′13″ (they may look the same as your's in the browser but they are not the same.
I was wondering, what are tr (turn 360 degrees) angle units?

Code:
```LOCAL aa,bb,cc,dd; EXPORT AngleCalcsExamples() BEGIN   //DMS calcs   aa:=EXPR("25°15′5″");   bb:=aa + EXPR("7°12′13.57″");   PRINT();   PRINT("aa (DMS)="+aa);   PRINT("bb="+bb);   //conversion from DMS to DEG, and vice versa   cc:=45.75;   PRINT("cc-deg="+cc);   cc:=→HMS(cc);   PRINT("cc-dms="+cc);   cc:=HMS→(cc);   PRINT("cc-deg="+cc);   //tr angle calcs???   dd:=SIN(325°15′55.3″);   PRINT("SIN(325°15′55.3″)="+dd);   dd:=SIN(325.2525_tr);   PRINT("SIN(325.2525_tr″)="+dd);   dd:=COS(45_tr);   PRINT("COS(45_tr)="+dd); END;```
Hello,

The tr, deg, rad... units are.. well units.
They are units in the fact that they are treated like unit objects, can be converted from one to another.

As a "hack", they are also supported in trig functions.

But their use is relatively limited in reality.
