Description: | Produces an arctangent (with the result in degrees). The result is the principal value of the argument of the nonzero complex number (X, Y). | ||
Class: | Elemental function; Generic | ||
Arguments:[1] | Y | Must be of type real. | |
X | Must have the same type and kind parameters as Y. | ||
Results: | The result
type is the same as X. The value lies in the range -180 degrees to
180 degrees. If X /= zero, the result is approximately equal to the
value of arctan (Y/X).
If Y > zero, the result is positive. If Y < zero, the result is negative. If Y = zero, the result is zero (if X > zero) or 180 degrees (if X < zero). If X = zero, the absolute value of the result is 90 degrees. | ||
[1] Both arguments must not have the value zero. |
