( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

> We never needed that,
I showed a use case producing short, self-explanatory code with the use of inf.

But what has that got to do with the whack/hack 1e9999 ?

$ perl -le " print for 1 .. 0+'Inf'" Range iterator outside integer range at -e line 1.

sure, why not introducing one more level of cryptic workarounds to justify perl's reputation of a line-noise-language instead of having self explanatory constants?

you know, I linked to the docs, the explanation, and the inf constant exporters (bigrat/bigint )

perl is fundamentally what it is, and it works the way it has for over a decade, if you don't like it, don't use it; calling it line-noise and cryptic at every turn is uninspired and uninteresting


well ... no comment on the fact of an AnoMonk who can update his nodes ...;-)

Boring :/
