Description

The function PI() can be used if the constant Pi is needed with maximum precision. One of the most known interpretations of this number is the constant perimeter-to-diameter-ratio of circles.

Examples

      // the diameter of a circle-like swimming pool is 3.4 meters, how
      // long is the perimeter ?

      ? Str( PI() * 3.4, 5, 3 ) + " meters" // --> 10.681 meters
