Either it overwrites the input, or it needs a second pointer
to the output array.
Function return value: up to you, normally you don't need one.

The dimension of the data is the same in both domains.
If one is a function of T, then the other is a function
of 1/T (for example: T = time, 1/T = frequency).

If you want such a display the FFT is not a good way to do it.
It's possible but not simple if you want a correct result.

Because you are using a complex FFT, and the imaginary part
of your signal is zero. That means that the spectrum must be

Use an FFT operating on real data instead of complex.
