Abstract


   CSPICE_RPD returns the double precision value of the constant PI/180
   which represents the number of radians per degree of arc.

   For important details concerning this module's function, please refer to
   the CSPICE routine rpd_c.

I/O

   
   Given:
   
      No input required.
   
   the call:
   
      radians_per_degree = cspice_rpd()
   
   returns:
   
      A double precision scalar, the number of radians per 
      degree: pi/180.
   

Examples


   Any numerical results shown for this example may differ between
   platforms as the results depend on the SPICE kernels used as input
   and the machine specific arithmetic implementation.

   
      print, cspice_rpd()
    
   IDL outputs:   0.017453293
   
   The IDL system variable !DTOR returns a single precision (float) value
   for PI/180 that equates to the value returned by the expression
   float( cspice_rpd() ).

Particulars


   None.
