Retrieves the square root of a complex number, with a branch cut along the negative real axis.


_Dcomplex csqrt(   
   _Dcomplex z   
_Fcomplex csqrt(   
   _Fcomplex z   
);  // C++ only  
_Lcomplex csqrt(   
   _Lcomplex z   
);  // C++ only  
_Fcomplex csqrtf(   
   _Fcomplex z   
_Lcomplex csqrtl(   
   _Lcomplex z   


A complex number.

Return Value

The square root of z. The result is in the right half-plane.

Input SEH Exception _matherr Exception
- ∞ none _DOMAIN


Because C++ allows overloading, you can call overloads of csqrt that take and return _Fcomplex and _Lcomplex values. In a C program, csqrt always takes and returns a _Dcomplex value.
