[New-bugs-announce] [issue27363] Complex with negative zero imaginary part

New submission from Vedran Čačić:


    >>> complex('1-0j')
    >>> 1-0j

Yes, I understand what's going on, and it's probably wrong / too much to expect 1-0j to work properly, but I'd really like the complex from string constructor to be consistent with that. Even more because (of course):

    >>> import ast
    >>> ast.literal_eval('1-0j')
