Link with -lm.

DESCRIPTION

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.)

VERSIONS

These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
