comment Putting semicolons after while and if statements in C++
But shouldn't that mean then the block after while is no longer part of it and thus should also run?

comment Putting semicolons after while and if statements in C++
Ok that makes sense, although I still don't see why if(expr); should run when it's false while while(expr); doesn't run when it is false.

comment Trying to sort the coefficients of the polynomial (z-a)(z-b)(z-c)…(z-n) into a vector
I was a bit careless, the number of roots is an even positive integer which I foolishly also called n, but a,b,...,n are arbitrary complex numbers. Ok I'll take a look at that answer thanks.

Ya for n=3 that's correct, above I was explaining how one derives these inputs for arbitrary n and arbitrary complex numbers. I also edited it above to include the alternating sign.
