Well, it was a good challenge and yes, I'll admit, like I've said before, HP did drop the ball on the 35S.
I've been running through the Polar-to-Rectangular steps I've devised and it does indeed decompose a complex number!
Here's the algorithm again:
For Polar to Rectangular Conversions AND to decompose a complex number:
(if Complex number is in display, omit this step) r [theta] theta [ENTER]
Otherwise proceed from here:
[ENTER] [ABS] [LASTx] [ARG] [SIN] [*] ==> Y coord (or imaginary component)
[x<>y] [ABS [LASTx] [ARG] [COS] [*] ==> X coord (or real component)
