Thank you, Glynn. I was able to assign the variable.

I do not know if I understood well about the scope of the variable. If
I need to use the variable in several maps, only works if Pi is
defined in each operation. For example:
This works:
r.mapcalc '= eval (pi = 3.14159265, pi + sin (map / pi))'
r.mapcalc 'b = eval (pi = 3.14159265, pi + cos (map / pi))'
But this does not:
r.mapcalc '= eval (pi = 3.14159265, pi + sin (map / pi))'
r.mapcalc 'b = eval (pi + cos (map / pi))'
Just out of curiosity: I searched on Google and documentation GRASS
how to do this, and could not find it. Does anyone know where it is
documented that?
Thanks again!
José María
