Requires: MathScript RT Module

c = inf

c = inf(a)

c = inf(a, b)

## Description

Generates a matrix of values of infinity, or indicates that a value is infinity. The IEEE standard for floating-point arithmetic defines infinity to be the result of operations that create values larger than that which can be represented. LabVIEW correctly parses mathematical expressions evaluating to infinity using the inf variable.

Examples

## Inputs

Name Description
a Specifies the number of rows in c. a is a positive integer.
b Specifies the number of columns in c. b is a positive integer.

## Outputs

Name Description
c Returns an a-by-b matrix whose elements are all a representation of the value of infinity. If you specify a but not b, c returns a square matrix of order a. If you do not specify an input, c returns a value of infinity. c is a scalar or matrix of positive, floating-point numbers.
