NAME
       catan, catanf, catanl - complex arc tangents

SYNOPSIS
       #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
       The  catan()  function  calculates  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) = 1 / 2i clog((1 + iz) / (1 - iz))

VERSIONS
       These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.

CONFORMING TO
