dtan

Returns the tangent of val, where val is in degrees.

Syntax:

GML Code Example

dtan(val);


Argument Description
val The angle (in degrees) to return the tangent of.


Returns: Real


Description

In a right angled triangle dtan(val) = Opposite / Adjacent where "val" is one of the three angles.

NOTE: A vast number of values (90, or -90 for example) will error with this function due to their returning infinity, a graph representation of this would produce asymptotes at these values.


Example:

GML Code Example

val = dtan(45);

This will set "val" to 1.
