ok doing that.

Right no, I see the following files:


You suggest that:

http://www.w3.org/2000/10/swap/test/math/trigo.n3 (doesn't exist yet)

Yes it works in radians. I hope it's correct, I have done that.

class BI_degrees(LightBuiltIn, Function, ReverseFunction):
	degrees (x)
	Converts angle x from radians to degrees.
	Convert angle x from degrees to radians.
     def evaluateObject(self, subj_py):
		return degrees(numeric(subj_py))
	def evaluateSubject(self, obj_py):
		return radians(numeric(obj_py))

done. I hope I have done nothing wrong.

In  http://www.w3.org/2000/10/swap/llyn.py revision 1.96

         import cwm_math    # Mathematics
         import cwm_trigo   # Trignometry
