Server Differences

In the above example, TinyMUX's fmod() does not return '1.1' exactly but '1.0999999999999996'. PennMUSH, RhostMUSH, and TinyMUSH automatically round to a pre-defined decimal place (usually the sixth decimal place).

TinyMUX also treats +Inf, -Inf, Ind, and NaN as special named numbers. PennMUSH typically treats +Inf, -Inf, and NaN similarly.
