*Class*:Elemental function

*Syntax*:`RESULT = COMPLEX(X, Y)`

*Arguments*:`X`The type may be `INTEGER`

or`REAL`

.`Y`The type may be `INTEGER`

or`REAL`

.*Return value*:If

`X`and`Y`are both of`INTEGER`

type, then the return value is of default`COMPLEX`

type.If

`X`and`Y`are of`REAL`

type, or one is of`REAL`

type and one is of`INTEGER`

type, then the return value is of`COMPLEX`

type with a kind equal to that of the`REAL`

argument with the highest precision.*Example*:program test_complex integer :: i = 42 real :: x = 3.14 print *, complex(i, x) end program test_complex
