I have similar logic, but use math.huge instead of 1/0:
type(s) == "number" and (s ~= s and '0/0'
or s == math.huge and 'math.huge' or s == -math.huge and '-math.huge') ...
This generates:
{
...
[math.huge] = -math.huge
}
I'm indeed running on Windows and haven't had a chance to test on
other platforms, so I'm not sure if this is Windows-only effect or
not, but this code should work fine on other platforms too...
