I'm sorry. I learned about "matherr" back in my DOS days, and I assumed that
"matherr" was ANSI C, but it's not. Harbison and Steele say that "matherr"
comes from System V Unix. Turbo C, Watcom C and Microsoft C all had "matherr".
Anyway, "matherr" does not handle division by zero and so all this is moot.
Sorry about the noise.
