But, then again, I've been wrong before and maybe there are good reasons that perl on linux decides to indulge in what are, to me, nothing more than gimmicks for the feeble-minded. That being the case, precisely what *are* those "good reasons" ?

perl -V:d_isnanl -V:d_isnan -V:d_isinf -V:d_isfinite
