in reply to Re: Converting a list of numbers to use a range operatorin thread [Solved] Converting a list of numbers to use a range operator
inf and -inf are special numeric constants
in this case they are handy, because $now+1 == inf won't raise a warning
DB<116> use warnings;5=="inf"
DB<117> use warnings;5=="WhatEver"
Argument "WhatEver" isn't numeric in numeric eq (==) at (eval 47)[mult
+i_perl5db.pl:644] line 2.
> Where is this "inf" documented?
no idea, I scanned the perldocs for X<inf> w/o success.
see also Infinity and Inf?
( addicted to the Perl Programming Language)
UPDATE: deleted wrong example about incrementing inf
