[SIC\]LET String [=] Value /SEXAGESIMAL [D|H|R] [D|H|R]
The /SEXAGESIMAL option allows to use sexagesimal expressions in assign-
ments. This option is only valid for scalar variables. Units of the
operands can be provided by optional characters chosen in D)egrees,
H)ours or R)adians. The first unit is for the output, the second for the
input. Radians are an invalid unit for the sexagesimal string. Degrees
are assumed by default for both operands.
The first form converts the sexagesimal expression into a numerical val-
ue stored in the assigned variable. Mathematical expressions can be used
for each elements, provided they are separated by a semicolon.
The second form converts a numerical value into the sexagesimal notation
stored in the assigned character variable.
