 Defined in header  float       cimagf( float complex z ); (1) (since C99) double      cimag( double complex z ); (2) (since C99) long double cimagl( long double complex z ); (3) (since C99) Defined in header  #define cimag( z ) (4) (since C99)
1-3) Returns the imaginary part of z.
4) Type-generic macro: if z has type long double complex, long double imaginary, or long double, cimagl is called. If z has type float complex, float imaginary, or float, cimagf is called. If z has type double complex, double imaginary, double, or any integer type, cimag is called.

Parameters

 z - complex argument

Return value

The imaginary part of z.

This function is fully specified for all possible inputs and is not subject to any errors described in math_errhandling

Notes

For any complex variable z, z == creal(z) + I*cimag(z).

Example

#include <stdio.h>
#include <complex.h>

int main(void)
{
double complex z = 1.0 + 2.0*I;
printf("%f%+fi\n", creal(z), cimag(z));
}

Output:

1.000000+2.000000i
