*To*: info-dylan@cambridge.apple.com*Subject*: bounded, infinite ranges?*From*: andyw@ibeam.ht.intel.com (Andy Wilson)*Date*: Mon, 19 Oct 92 17:40 PDT

Excuse me if this question has been asked before ... but since the Dylan language has IEEE floats and thus contains infinities, couldn't the "up-to:", "through:" or "size:" parameters for a range be infinite? One could thus have an infinite range which is still bounded. If this supposition is true, perhaps the language definition should be changed so that infinite ranges are always treated as unbounded. Oh, that reminds me: what is the Dylan syntax for infinities, NaNs, and other IEEE goodies? They don't seem to be specified in the April '92 manual. atw
