Re^3: Incrementing "Infinity" bug (numification, perlnumber, magic increment decrement)by Anonymous Monk
|on Mar 25, 2013 at 07:17 UTC||Need Help??|
It's a bug or at least a design flow.
How do you figure? I think it isn't
So why doesn't Perl do this per default?
You know why, tradition (backwards compatibility ). "barewords" have always been strings
Also style, lowercase constants are unbecoming :p
do we really need to use hacks like 1e9999 to create inf?
We never needed that, use 0+'inf' or int '-inf' ...
But hey, one of the math modules could export ... or even use feature 'infinity'; could happen though I don't see the benefit, but what do I know
