Hello,

I need to create a flexible and quite general power function that would allow me to make such operation as


p=x^y;


But it should be able to work on wide range of arguments like for example:

p=-0.4^-(0.25)


and not only for integers or positive values. Because for example

p=pow(x,y)


C++ function returns an error.
Thanks in advance,
Misery

The result of -0.4 ^ -0.25 is a complex number so you should just use the complex functions in the standard library.

#include <complex>

and you're good to go.
