On FreePascal the following insctruction:



 1.1071487177940905E+0000 1.1071487177940905E+0000

I believe this is in contradiction with the docomentation where it is
said that

arctan2(x,y) calculates atan(y/x)

It would be OK if the documentation stated

arctan2(y,x) calculates atan(y/x)
Since I am not receiving any messages from the FPC mailing list, and I
know that some developpers of FPC read this newsgroup, I am posting it

By the way: I find Free Pascal great!!

P.S. I've posted this earlier to comp.lang.pascal.misc, because I was
having problems with this mailing list. But this is the right place to
post, so, there you have it!
