NAME
       fixatan - Fixed point inverse tangent lookup table. Allegro game
       programming library.

SYNOPSIS
       #include <allegro.h>


       fixed fixatan(fixed x);

DESCRIPTION
       This function finds the inverse tangent of a value using a lookup table.
       The input value must be a fixed point radian. The inverse tangent is the
       value whose tangent is `x'. Example:

          fixed result;

          /* Sets `result' to binary angle 13. */
          result = fixatan(ftofix(0.326));

RETURN VALUE
       Returns the inverse tangent of a fixed point value, measured as a fixed
       point binary format angle.
