The _PI function returns π as a _FLOAT value with an optional multiplier parameter.


circumference = _PI[(multiplier)]


  • Optional multiplier (2 * radius in above syntax) allows multiplication of the π value.


  • Function can be used in to supply π or multiples in a program.
  • Accuracy is determined by the return variable type AS SINGLE, DOUBLE or _FLOAT.
  • The π value can also be derived using 4 * ATN(1) for a SINGLE value.


Example: Calculating the area of a circle using a SINGLE variable in this case.

radius = 5 circlearea = _PI(radius ^ 2) PRINT circlearea
