double atan2(
num a,
num b
)

A variant of atan.

Converts both arguments to doubles.

Returns the angle between the positive x-axis and the vector (`b`,`a`). The result, in radians, is in the range -PI..PI.

If `b` is positive, this is the same as `atan(b/a)`.

The result is negative when `a` is negative (including when `a` is the double -0.0).

If `a` is equal to zero, the vector (`b`,`a`) is considered parallel to the x-axis, even if `b` is also equal to zero. The sign of `b` determines the direction of the vector along the x-axis.

Returns NaN if either argument is NaN.
