hi, I've got a strange problem with my app. My progams reasonably complicated and not working, so I'm not sure where the problem is coming from, but the problem is that some floating point values are #DEN. For example 1.229e-040#DEN I've never came accross this before, and can't find a definition of what this means online.

What do these float values represent? What are you using them for in the application?

ok so #DEN just means a number is really really really rediculously close to zero?

also I don't suppose #DEN has any bearing on a number being #QNAN?
