C (and ergo Matlab) is woefully weak in input/output for complex variables. Should been remedied by TMW from the git-go given Matlab is a computational engine and complex variables are inherent in much of science/engineering. But, that aside, one "trick" you can use if you aren't too particular about the output format is
0.1855 + 0.2663i 0.0469 + 0.9033i 0.9006 + 0.8023i
0.8028 + 0.1542i 0.0428 + 0.7362i 0.7809 + 0.5418i
0.8315 + 0.5255i 0.5429 + 0.9076i 0.8857 + 0.4982i
will give you

Alternatively, write the loop but explicit format for both real, imaginary parts...
Alternatively, can simplify the organization expression significantly by just writing the explicit double loop...
Another place where a Fortran idiom is really useful...the implied DO so don't have to write the full explicit second for loop.
I remain amazed TMW has never seen fit to deal with such trivialities in 40+ years... :(
