E**(i*pi)=-1 or e**(j*pi)=-1, something I found out in Python using part of Eulers Identit equation.

Well guys and gals I have discovered after all these years that Python does complex numbers without the 'complex()' function or 'cmath' import.
It is well known that Euler's Identity E**(i*pi)+1=0 so I decided to experiment

>>> pi=3.14159265359

>>> e**(pi*1j)

>>> exit()

As you can see within the limitations of the floating point accuracy e**(pi*1j)=-1.
We all live and learn and it also works for Python 1.4.0 for the AMIGA.
