CINT Function Programming Example
The following example converts an angle in radians to an angle in
degrees and minutes:
'Set up constants for converting radians to degrees.
CONST PI=3.141593, RADTODEG=180./PI
INPUT "Angle in radians = ",Angle 'Get the angle in radians.
Angle = Angle * RADTODEG 'Convert radian input to degrees.
Min = Angle - INT(Angle) 'Get the fractional part.
'Convert fraction to value between 0 and 60.
Min = CINT(Min * 60)
Angle = INT(Angle) 'Get whole number part.
IF Min = 60 THEN '60 minutes = 1 degree.
Angle = Angle + 1
Min = 0
END IF
PRINT "Angle equals" Angle "degrees" Min "minutes"
Sample Output
Angle in radians = 1.5708
Angle equals 90 degrees 0 minutes
