Very true. But since perl is using double precision on my machine, you will never get that number. You would need quad precision to represent 1.9041105342991887e+258.

    Ignore this. I'm seeing things.


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority". I knew I was on the right track :)
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice. Not understood.
