Thanks, reesej, it seems you can explain better than I. Also, I'd like to point out that - even if the direction didn't matter, and you always looked "east" or "west" - the derivative isn't just sgn(z). z=x+iy, and abs(z)=sqrt(x^2+y^2). So, if y is constant, d(abs)/dz=d(sqrt(y^2+x^2))/dx, which equals x/sqrt(y^2+x^2), or sqrt(x^2/(y^2+x^2)). At x=0, this is zero; in other words, for a purely imaginary value, the derivative in the real direction is zero, not sign(z).  Logged

Someday, man will understand primary theory; how every aspect of our universe has come about. Then we will describe all of physics, build a complete understanding of genetic engineering, catalog all planets, and find intelligent life. And then we'll just puzzle over fractals for eternity.
