    How do I plot a Complex Function like...

    e^ix?

    I tried things like...

    complexplot(x,y);

    ...but that gets me knowhere.

    I searched on the program, but it never mentions anything about a Complex Plane of Argand Plane.

    I would really like to see this graph, which probably looks like a trig function anyways.

    How would you do that?

    That's what I am trying to do. How would I plot real vs. imaginary components? That is what a complex plane is, and I looked for it.

    Sorry, I'm kind of new at the program.

    plot the real axis as cos(x) and the imaginary axis as sin(x).....should look like a circle of unit radius.
