Oops Sad

Quote:Since ->P x<>y is not shorter than a division and arctan (two steps in both cases) the only advantage of the ->P method may be that if the denominator is negative the returned angle is positive: arctan(1/–1) returns –45° while 1 ENTER –1 ->P yields +135°.

There is also an advantage when the denominator is zero. This alone makes it worthwhile I think.
