To be anal about it and just generally irritating:
"1e-4f*(n)" is also outside the atan(). The whole macro is wrapped in parentheses.
BTW, that is always the preferred way so that the preprocessor doesn't
accidentally change the intended order of evaluation in situations like
"x * toBARK(y)". (Try manual substitution with vs. without the parentheses.)
Similarly, when defining function-like macros that have more than one clause,
one should always surround the body of macro with braces ie. define the macro
as a block. This is done to avoid things like "if(x) MACRO(y);" turning
into something catastrophic.
