FAQ
Hi there,

is there any simple reason why IEEE special values are so poorly supported
in python? Are there any serious efforts to change that? NaN and Inf are an
extremely useful concept for numerical calculations and they would mix
perfectly with the concepts in NumPy, anyhow, the support seems to be
absolutely minimal.

(The ideas in PEP 754 do not really change much: There is little use in easy
access to those values, if the math functions don't accept them as input
but break down.)

Ciao,
Nobbi
