Hello all,

This is a summary of ruby-dev ML in these days.


  [ruby-dev:23704] [mswin32] representation of NaN, Inf in printf

Katonbo reported strange representations of NaN and Inf
in printf of mswin32 Ruby.

C:\tmp>ruby -ve "(0..6).each {|i| printf(\"%.*f\n\",i, 0.0/0.0)}"
ruby 1.8.1 (2003-12-25) [i386-mswin32]
-1
-1.$
-1.#J
-1.#IO
-1.#IND
-1.#IND0
-1.#IND00

According to Microsoft, It's a specification of Runtime library:
<http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/vclib/html/_crt_precision_specification.asp>

Katonbo made a patch for this. U.Nakamura brushed up
his patch and commited it with Matz's advice.

Nakamura pointed out that the string "nan" and "inf" are
used as NaN and Inf in some environments. His patch
forced to use "NaN" and "Inf". He needs comments
about this change.
