Mathematical constants are needed in some conversion calculations. In older versions of SAS, either complicated formulas must be used to calculate these constants or a standard value must be supplied.

However, with the constant function in SAS, some mathematical functions can be derived directly. Below is the example for the constant PI.

   data _null_;
     pi=constant('pi');
     put pi=;
   run;
