Thanks Carl & Chris.  I've read the Python doc 10.3 and now understand
its for complex arithmetic. 
I've used python a few months and expected to find cmath seperately
sort of as a " header file".  A text search failed.  I now understand
its in the Python Standard Library, which I assume is that big file
Python30\LIBS\libpython30.a        And this is not readable as text.
