catanf

       #include <complex.h>

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

       Link with -lm.

DESCRIPTION
       These   functions   calculate   the  complex  arc  tangent  of  z.   If
       y = catan(z), then z = ctan(y).  The real part of y is  chosen  in  the
       interval [-pi/2,pi/2].

       One has:

           catan(z) = (clog(1 + i * z) - clog(1 - i * z)) / (2 * i)

VERSIONS
       These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
