    Write two functions or macros to convert both ways.

    Write it once.

    #INCLUDE it often or put in your "template" file.

    Use it many.

  • Error in the PBCC help file regarding degrees to radians conversion

    In the help file for ATN, there is a snippet that needs some correction:

    Rather than memorizing the radians/degrees conversion factors, calculate them for yourself by remembering this relationship:
    2 pi radians equals a full circle (360 degrees), so 1 pi radian is 180 / pi degrees. Conversely, 1 degree equals pi / 180 radians.

    The underlined part should actually read:

    so 1 pi radian = 180 degrees, and 1 radian = 180 / pi degrees.
    Otherwise, some people might get confused.
Working...
