NAMEcatan, catanf, catanl - complex arc tangents
double complex catan(double complex z);
float complex catanf(float complex z);
long double complex catanl(long double complex z);
DESCRIPTIONThe catan() function calculates 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].
catan(z) = 1 / 2i clog((1 + iz) / (1 - iz))
VERSIONSThese functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
