TFLOP = Tera FLoating point OPerations [ per second ]
where Tera is a metric prefix = 10^12
[1,000,000,000,000 for the metricly confused]
The primary purpose of the DATA statement is to give names to constants; instead of referring to pi as 3.141592653589793 at every appearance, the variable PI can be given that value with a DATA statement and used instead of the longer form of the constant. This also simplifies modifying the program, should the value of pi change.
