##
Overview

This is yet another quadratic equation program that's only 21 bytes long.

It should be noted that I'm NOT the original author of this program. It was
posted in the forums quite some time ago and it seems to have failed to make
it into the software library, so here it is!

Usage:

Make sure the equation is in the form "ax^2 + bx + c = 0"

Enter a, b and c in order so that they are in registers Z, Y and X respectively.

Run the program. The roots will be placed in the X and Y registers.

If you get an "Error 0", turn on complex mode (SF 8) and try again.
