in reply to $array[ 'Infinity' ]
Do you think that this should be filed as a bug? I mean the different behavior of v5.8.8 built for different platforms, not the confusion about Infinity and inf. This is in my opinion not a matter of atof because the problem arises after you manage to get the actual infinity. Array indexed by minus infinity shouldn't yield the first element and if so, then on all platforms, I would think. If you agree that it should be filed, then I humbly ask your guidance on how and where to do so.
