NAME

atan, atanf, atanl - arc tangent function

SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h>

double atan(double x); float atanf(float x); long double atanl( long double x);
Link with -lm.
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
atanf(), atanl():
_ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L
|| /* Since glibc 2.19: */ _DEFAULT_SOURCE
|| /* Glibc versions <= 2.19: */ _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION

These functions calculate the principal value of the arc tangent of x; that is the value whose tangent is x.

RETURN VALUE

On success, these functions return the principal value of the arc tangent of x in radians; the return value is in the range [-pi/2, pi/2].
If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If x is +0 (-0), +0 (-0) is returned.
If x is positive infinity (negative infinity), +pi/2 (-pi/2) is returned.

ERRORS

No errors occur.
