NAME catan, catanf, catanl - complex arc tangent functions

SYNOPSIS #include <complex.h>

double complex catan(double complex z); float complex catanf(float complex z); long double complex catanl(long double complex z);

DESCRIPTION These functions shall compute the complex arc tangent of z, with branch cuts outside the interval [-i, +i] along the imaginary axis.

RETURN VALUE These functions shall return the complex arc tangent value, in the range of a strip mathematically unbounded along the imaginary axis and in the interval [-pi/2, +pi/2] along the real axis.

ERRORS No errors are defined.
