Using the Complex Arithmetic Library

Complex numbers are numbers made up of a real part and an imaginary part. For example:

3.2 + 4i 1 + 3i 1 + 2.3i

In the degenerate case, 0 + 3i is an entirely imaginary number generally written as 3i, and 5 + 0i is an entirely real number generally written as 5. You can represent complex numbers using the complex data type.

Note - The complex arithmetic library ( libcomplex) is available only for compatibility mode ( -compat[ =4]). In standard mode (the default mode), complex number classes with similar functionality are included with the C++ Standard Library libCstd.
