thanks for the link. I was following the forum, so I already knew about this "problem". My remark was less a question, more a complaint. With a complex valued y^x, some functions become obsolete (sin, cos, sinh, cosh, sqr, sqrt, exp, 10^x, and so on). So why do we have keys for them - to make life easier. I donīt know much about the internals, but would it be hard to implement some operator overloading? So for real arguments the calculator behaves like it does now (and uses the same algorithms), and for complex numbers we get the complex function?
At leastfrom my point of view (and I am only a user) this would make sense.
