The spectest for this, t/spec/S03-operators/arith.t #163 (line 352), fails on OpenSolaris because it expects 1**Inf to return 1, but instead it returns NaN. Show quoted text

2:07 bbkr Can OpenSolaris tickets #69466, #69464 and #69480 be closed if OpenSolaris system has been discontinued on 2010-08-13? I doubt that someone wants to install abandoned OS to check if those bugs are fixed. 2:08 tadzik I remember asking that question some time ago :) 2:08 masak bbkr: if you ask me, then yes. bbkr: but it might be one of those where pmichaud has a say. 2:10 bbkr masak: I agree, those are zombie tickets. but I'll wait for pmichaud opinion.

Sorry about the delay. With OpenSolaris discontinued several years ago, I'm going to reject this ticket. Thanks for the report; please feel free to resbumit if you can duplicate it against a current OS. -- Will "Coke" Coleda
