Numeric literal example:

D lang syntax
RawWrangle true ref true derive type:single value: round(degrees(1.0000),4)

round(degrees(1.0000),4)

Output: Returns the computation in degrees of `1.0000` radians, which is `57.2728`, rounded to 4 decimals.

Column reference example:

D lang syntax
RawWrangle true ref true derive type:single value: degrees(myRads) as: myDegrees'

degrees(myRads)

Output: Returns the conversion of the values in `MyRads` column to degrees.
