cabsl Function

Calculates the complex absolute value of a long double precision complex value.

Attention: This function is implemented only by MPLAB XC32 C compilers.




long double complex cabsl(long double complex z);


value for which to return the complex absolute value

Return Value

Returns the complex absolute value (also known as the magnitude, modulus, or norm) of z.


See the notes at the beginning of this chapter or section for information on using printf() or scanf() (and other functions reading and writing the stdin or stdout streams) in the example code.

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

int main(void)
  long double complex x, y;

  x = -2.0 + 1.0*I;
  y = cabsl(x);
  printf("The complex absolute value of %Lf + %Lfi is %Lf + %Lfi\n", creall(x), cimagl(x), creall(y), cimagl(y));

Example Output

The complex absolute value of -2.000000 + 1.000000i is 2.236068 + 0.000000i
