# 8-bit atan2

might be more precise to add a clc adc #\$01 after each eor #\$ff, you have to modify all the preceding bcs *+4/ bcc *+4 to *+7 to get the branches correct. also you can omit the clc where bcs is used. adding a SEC before all sbc's might increase the accuracy even further. :) /Oswald

```;; Calculate the angle, in a 256-degree circle, between two points.
;; The trick is to use logarithmic division to get the y/x ratio and
;; integrate the power function into the atan table. Some branching is
;; avoided by using a table to adjust for the octants.
;; In otherwords nothing new or particularily clever but nevertheless
;; quite useful.
