Issue #15654 has been updated by Hanmac (Hans Mackowiak).


@nobu: i don't know if that would be better, but can the parser be changed to support that stuff like "2+1i" would create the Complex object directly?

Misc #15654: Documentation for Complex is wrong or misleading

----------------------------------------
The documentation for `Complex` https://ruby-doc.org/core-2.6/Complex.html says or implies that a complex can be created by literal like `2+1i`, but that is actually calling the method `+` on receiver `2` with argument `1i`. The description should be changed to make it clear that `2+ 1i` is not a literal but is applying a method.
