28S Pi Functionality  Matt Fegenbush  10162012 I have reviewed the manual regarding the pi function on the 28S, but what I would like to do is not have to hit >NUM every time I evaluate an expression containing pi. Is there a way to configure the approximation instead of the function?
Re: 28S Pi Functionality  Gerson W. Barbosa  10162012 36 CF does what you want. More at section 24 of the Owner's Manual, page 205. HTH.
Re: 28S Pi Functionality  Matt Fegenbush  10162012 That did the trick, thank you very much.
Re: 28S Pi Functionality  Nick_S  10172012 One may avoid the need to set the global flag to return numerical values by storing the program << >NUM>> in a variable named PI. You can then directly evaluate expressions like for example, '2*PI*5^2' or use the solver with symbolic expressions such as '2*PI*R^2' setting R to 5 and solving for EXPR= to obtain a numerical result.
