Geometry library for matlab. Performs geometric computations on points, lines, circles, polygons...

angle2Points(varargin)
function theta = angle2Points(varargin)
%ANGLE2POINTS Compute horizontal angle between 2 points
%
%   ALPHA = angle2Points(P1, P2),
%   Pi are either [1*2] arrays, or [N*2] arrays, in this case ALPHA is a 
%   [N*1] array. The angle computed is the horizontal angle of the line 
%   (P1 P2)
%   Result is always given in radians, between 0 and 2*pi.
