Re^2: Perl returns NaN after addition
in thread Perl returns NaN after addition
or, if the OP happens to use Math::BigFloat
It's interesting that Math::BigFloat decides it has to numify a non-numeric string to NaN ... when everything else numifies such a string to zero.Actually, I'm tempted to s/interesting/stupid/, but maybe there's a precedent somewhere that gives some credence to the Math::BigFloat behaviour.
