How to automatically calculate the angle between two intersecting polylines

I have 52338 polygons which needs to be edited using the following rules;


The distance between the intersection point and the closest vertices on two  intersecting

polylines should be at least 1.2 meter as shown below. On the  other hand the distance

between two closest vertices should not be less than 2 meters. What I'm trying to do is

automatically calculate  the optimum angle angle between two polylines to meet the given

two rules as I explained above.


ArcGIS Desktop doesn't have such built-in tool to calculate the angle as far as I know.

Is there any tool or script that you could suggest ?  If there is no such solution it would

also be great, to select vertices which are  2 meters apart from the intersection point.

I will be grateful for any help you could provide.
