You need to use ! to plot use computed values:
/lograd 10 def %
\psline(!4.9; lograd)(!5.2; lograd)

Subject: [pstricks] log/ln in radial context for circular sliderule
I am working myself through the magic of sliderules right now and want
to spend some thoughts on rebuilding one. I think that labeling should
be done precisely therefore by PSTricks (or maybe something else?).
Now I started to map 1..10 to 0..360 of a circle to draw tickmarks in a
log-fashion. My idea is (1st iteration):
So where do I go wrong?
%% /lograd \i\space ln -360 mul 10 ln div def
Even a "simple number" isnt doing it and throwing "! Bad number: `lograd´."
/lograd 10 def
\psline(4.9; lograd)(5.2; lograd)
