NAME catan, catanf, catanl - complex arc tangents
SYNOPSIS #include <complex.h> double complex catan(double complex z); float complex catanf(float complex z); long double complex catanl(long double complex z); Link with -lm.
DESCRIPTION These functions calculate the complex arc tangent of z. If y = catan(z), then z = ctan(y). The real part of y is chosen in the interval [-pi/2,pi/2]. One has: catan(z) = (clog(1 + i * z) - clog(1 - i * z)) / (2 * i)
VERSIONS These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
