csqrt, csqrtf, csqrtl − complex square root
double complex csqrt(double complex z);
float complex csqrtf(float complex z);
long double complex csqrtl(long double complex z);
Link with −lm.
Calculate the square root of a given complex number, with nonnegative real part, and with a branch cut
along the negative real axis. (That means that csqrt(−1+eps*I) will be close to I while csqrt(−1−eps*I)
will be close to −I, if eps is a small positive real number.)
These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
