ATAN(3) 			    Linux Programmer's Manual				  ATAN(3)

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():
	   _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE ||
	   _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
	   or cc -std=c99

DESCRIPTION
       The atan() function calculates 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.

CONFORMING TO
       C99, POSIX.1-2001.  The variant returning double also conforms to SVr4, 4.3BSD, C89.
