Is it possible to determine in which direction an angle is measured?

Hi everyone,
I want to measure multiple angles between vectors always to the same direction. i.e. I would also receive angles larger than 180 degree for some cases.
The only function I know is the angleBetween(), but it just always takes the smaller angle(<180 deg). Is there a way to always measure in the same direction (e.g. always clockwise in the XY-plane)?

    Oke, after some issues with the sign change at 180°, it worked.
    Thanks a lot Neil!
