Yes, I was somewhat disturbed by what Abigail-II reported for Perl 4; one would hope for consistency. I assume you've looked in the Perl source code to see how it evaluates 0**0? I would guess that it uses the operating system's math tools. I guess you are going to have to check for zeroes anyway, and set the value as an exception to be safe. Ugly, but it should work.

    Not really. I don't know C and Perl's source looks like a sendmail configuration file to me. :))
