[SciPy-user] is there an easy way to extend/continuate a modulo function ?

Thanks Ryan,

arctan2 works twice as well as arctan+unwrap ;-)
i.e. it unfolds the from (-pi/1 .. pi/2)  into (-pi ..pi)

But unfortunately, both methods don't seem to work on this specific 
transfer function,
I see a lot "-1.#IND", seems to be a special presentation of "-1",
but don't know what it "really" means,
my wrapper application also seems to have trouble with that.
If I find more details, you'll hear again from me.
