Link with -lm.
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
These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.
