degree

degree

The** degree **statement tells Panorama that all angles input to and calculated in trigonometric functions are in degrees rather than radians.

**Parameters**

No parameters.

**Description**

The *degree* statement doesn’t perform any visible action on its own. However, it tells Panorama that all angles input to and calculated in trigonometric functions are in degrees rather than radians. (Note: Panorama always reverts back to radians after the procedure is finished; radian is the default setting.)
