Computing arctangent

Recommended Posts

I need to find the arctangent of a dx and dy, so that the angle returned is in the appropriate quadrant. So far I have been using a lookup table of the tangent of the first 180 degrees and doing a binary search through that, and using symmetry if dy is negative. Is this the fastest way to do it?
