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 Email: Charles_S_Patridge@prodigy.net
