GNU Octave, version 3.8.1
Octave was configured for "x86_64-apple-darwin14.1.0".

octave --eval "asind(3)" yields 90.000 + 100.998i
however wolfram alpha yields 
89.999999999999...-100.9979734210524220... i
Please note the negative sign next to the imaginary number.
My personal calculations give 90 + -100.997973421052i
Again I am noting the negative sign not the rounding.

Found same for:
octave --eval "atand(5i)"
result: -90.000 + 11.616i
wolfram alpha: 
89.99999999... + 11.61571971720673661409100... i
note the -90 instead of 90

octave: -1.57080 + 0.20273i
wolfram alpha: 1.5707963267... + 0.20273255... i
personal: 1.570796326+0.202732554i

octave: 1.5708 + 1.7627i
wolfram alpha: 1.570796326... -1.7627471740... i
personal: 1.570796326+-1.76274717i

Most likely I am in error, if so I apologize ahead of time.  Thanks for
looking at this.
