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 py5 require their parameters to be specified in radians.
This function makes a call to the numpy ``degrees()`` function.
