The unit ucomplex is part of the rtl. It uses simple operator 
overloading to add a pretty useful complex type into your program. You 
can use it(pretty much) as any other type. It's not any special type, 
it's just a record where all the operators got overloaded

Try to open the source code for that unit, and you'll see how 
beautifully simple it is :)
