Subject: numify() doesn't handle infs and nans
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 535b
The numify() method converts objects into scalar values, but it doesn't handle infs and nans: $ perl -Mautobox::universal=type -MMath::BigInt -wle '$x = Math::BigInt -> binf() -> numify(); print $x, " is a ", type($x)' inf is a STRING $ perl -Mautobox::universal=type -MMath::BigInt -wle '$x = Math::BigInt -> bnan() -> numify(); print $x, " is a ", type($x)' NaN is a STRING Compare this with Inf() in Math::Complex: $ perl -Mautobox::universal=type -MMath::Complex=Inf -wle '$x = Inf; print $x, " is a ", type($x)' inf is a FLOAT
