user entered constants

    I have three permanent constants in this catagory.
    "pi", "n", and "e".
    pi= 3.1415926535898
    n= 1
    e= 2.71828182846
    They don't get deleted like all the other user entered constants when I exit graphcalc.
    I like this feature for "pi".
    Where are these values stored and can I modify
    this list of "permanent" user entered constants?

      I don't know where these constants are stored, but if you want to modify them, the easiest way is perhaps to write a little script, to redefine the needed variables.
      This script could be executed automatically after the start of the program (see under Options -> Program Options -> Startup Script -> Enable and enter your script name)
      In the script file you enter all the things you needed. My file contains:

      c=(Physics|c (m/s))
      q=(Physics|electron charge (C))
      u=(Physics|atomic mas unit)
      h=(Physics|Planck constant |-|h (J s))

      I hope, I could help you with this.

      thanks Laurent.

      That works fine. I'm still curious about the location
      of the pi, e, and n, constants listed as user entered. They seem to be permanent.
