    Scanning for input; structures

    I need to write a function which reads two complex number from the user and stores it into the structure. How should I scan for input?
    typedef struct{
    float real, imag;
    } complex_t;
    complex_t read_complex(void)

    Usually, a complex number is written like a + bi.

    So why not use scanf() with an appropriate format string? What have you tried?

    Bye, Andreas
