Arc tangent of two variables (PHP 4, PHP 5)
float atan2 ( float y, float x )

This function calculates the arc tangent of the two variables x and y. It is similar to calculating the arc tangent of y / x, except that the signs of both arguments are used to determine the quadrant of the result.

The function returns the result in radians, which is between -PI and PI (inclusive).

Parameters

x

Divisor parameter
