    Hi List,

    Is it possible to format the imaginary unit to j rather than i?

    The documentation for Octave is good, but it is a preponderance to
    search thru.

    Thanks for any advice in advance!

As long as you haven't overwritten it as a variable, either i or j (and
I or J) are recognized as sqrt(-1).

 >> help j
Thanks Nicholas.

However
>> 1+1j
ans =  1 + 1i

1 + 1j would be preferable.

Used to have an HP-32C RPN calculator back in '75, cost a bunch of pocket money. Them thar and now are the days.
