Formats a displayed number as a degree-minute-second angle.
- 2nd ANGLE to access the angle menu.
- 4 to select ►DMS, or use arrows and ENTER.
The ►DMS command can be used when displaying a real number on the home screen, or with the Disp and Pause commands. It will then format the number as an angle with degree, minute, and second parts.
It will also work when displaying a number by putting it on the last line of a program by itself. It does not work with Output(, Text(, or any other more complicated display commands.
Although the ►DMS is meant as a way to format angles in Degree mode, it doesn't depend on the angle mode chosen, only on the number itself. Note that entering a number as degree°minutesecond" will also work, in any mode, and it will not be converted to radians in Radian mode.
- ERR:SYNTAX is thrown if the command is used somewhere other than the allowed display commands.
- ERR:DATA TYPE is thrown if the value is complex, or if given a list or matrix as argument.
