Hi Liam,

I believe this might be Borland (Inprise) specific behaviour.
They set up the floating point to give exceptions, rather than returning inf.

To disable them, please do

#include <float.h>
_control87(MCW_EM, MCW_EM);

    can anyone else confirm this - it might be my build (c++ builder)?

This is not the behaviour I see
