Atan2
Syntax
FLOAT atan2 ( <FLOAT y> , <FLOAT x>)
Description
Returns the arctangent of a certain value. It is computed as the arc tangent of y/x. The signs of the arguments are used to perform the calculation.
This function performs an arctangent calculation on a certain value and returns an angle between but not including -180000 and 180000 (-180-180º).
Parameters
FLOAT y | - The Y value to be performed an arctangent calculation on. |
FLOAT x | - The X value to be performed an arctangent calculation on. |
Returns
FLOAT : The arctangent result of the specified value, an angle between but not including -180000 and 180000 (-180-180º).
Notes
The angle value returned by this function is in thousandths of degrees, as most angles within Bennu are.
