Name 
degrees() 
Examples  float rad = PI/4;
float deg = degrees(rad);
println(rad + " radians is " + deg + " degrees");

Description 
Converts a radian measurement to its corresponding value in degrees. Radians and degrees are two ways of measuring the same thing. There are 360 degrees in a circle and 2*PI radians in a circle. For example, 90° = PI/2 = 1.5707964. All trigonometric functions in Processing require their parameters to be specified in radians.

Syntax  degrees(radians) 
Parameters 
radians 
float: radian value to convert to degrees
