Provides subroutines for coverting between degrees, radians, and gradians; converting between different coordinate systems (cartesian, spherical, cylindrical); and great circle formulas.
Also provides versions of the common trigonemetric functions that take or return their arguments in degrees:
There are also some useful constants defined:
pi2 = pi/2;
pi4 = pi/4;
_2pi = pi*2;
_4pi = pi*4;
use Math::Trig; # no trigonometric functions exported
use Math::Trig :ALL; # includes the trig functions
zef install Math::Trig
- This is a work in progress. Caveat emptor.
