This case should return inf: $ perl -MMath::BigInt -wle '$x = Math::BigInt -> binf("+"); print $x ** $x' NaN These two cases should return 0: $ perl -MMath::BigInt -wle '$x = Math::BigInt -> binf("+"); print $x ** (-$x)' NaN $ perl -MMath::BigFloat -wle '$x = Math::BigFloat -> binf("+"); print $x ** (-$x)' inf These bugs have been around for ages.
