Converting degrees to radians


#1

The standard trigonometric functions uses an angle, measured in radian.

But what if input expression contains angle in degrees?

let test = "2 - sin(60)" |> Infix.parseOrUndefined

Is there any function for easy transformation?

(I looked to the source code but not found anything helpful for me)

Is this more about parsing (and potentially formatting) string expressions, or would you also have a need to represent it that way internally?


#3

Well, I agree it’s rather Q about parsin/formatting. I just think it can be useful.


(Christoph Rüegg) #4

It could also be more, e.g. supporting units. If it is only about parsing/formatting, I may have a rough idea how we could support this (it is non-trivial since we’d likely want to apply automatic simplification to the argument transformation).

wow, it’s awesome news
