REAL_PART

REAL_PART

The REAL_PART function returns the real part of its complex-valued argument.

Examples


The following example demonstrates how you can use REAL_PART to obtain the real parts of an array of complex variables.

; Create an array of complex values:
cValues = COMPLEX([1, 2, 3],[4, 5, 6])
; Print just the real parts of each element in cValues:
PRINT, REAL_PART(cValues)

IDL prints:

 1.00000   2.00000   3.00000

Syntax


Result = REAL_PART(Z)

Return Value


If the complex-valued argument is double-precision, the result will be double-precision, otherwise the result will be single-precision floating-point. If the argument is not complex, then the result will be double-precision if the argument is double-precision, otherwise the result will be single-precision.

Arguments


Z

A scalar or array for which the real part is desired. Z may be of any numeric type.
