Convert an angle in radians to degrees, arcminutes, arcseconds,
fraction (double precision).
CALL sla_DR2AF (NDP, ANGLE, SIGN, IDMSF)
number of decimal places of arcseconds
angle in radians
`+' or `-'
degrees, arcminutes, arcseconds, fraction
NDP less than zero is interpreted as zero.
The largest useful value for NDP is determined by the size
of ANGLE, the format of DOUBLE PRECISION floating-point numbers
on the target machine, and the risk of overflowing IDMSF(4).
For example, on a VAX computer, for ANGLE up to , the available
floating-point precision corresponds roughly to NDP=12. However,
the practical limit is NDP=9, set by the capacity of the 32-bit
The absolute value of ANGLE may exceed . In cases where it
does not, it is up to the caller to test for and handle the
case where ANGLE is very nearly and rounds up to , by testing for IDMSF(1)=360 and setting IDMSF(1-4) to zero.
