## @deftypefn {Function File} {@var{ecc} =} flat2ecc (@var{flat})
## This will return the eccentricity given a flattening
## From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flattening
##
## e^2=2f-f^2
##
## where f is the flattening and e is the eccentricity
## earth_flattening=1/298.257=0.0033528
## and earth_eccentricity=.081819221456

## @example
## >>e=flat2ecc(0.0033528)
## e = 0.081819
## @seealso{ecc2flat}
## @end deftypefn
function e = flat2ecc(f)
e = sqrt(2 * f - f^2);
