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.
