atan2 arctangent


BinaryOperator


atan2(y, x)

y atan2: x

y.atan2(x)


Returns the arctangent of y/x.


See also hypot.


OK, now we can add a pan to the hypot doppler examples by using atan2 to find the azimuth, 

or direction angle, of the sound source.

Assume speakers at +/- 45 degrees and clip the direction to between those.
