Subject: Re: 3.14159 is an estimate of Pi,
did SAS has a better way of get ting it?
Eric,
I tried using this function "constant" in version 6.12 and did not work.
SAS does not recognize this as a function.
Is this something new in version 8??
If so, then I understand why it didn't work.
Thanks,
Charles Patridge
