Description:


Raised by logarithm functions,
when the function's-arg is not strictly positive,
and the result would be infinite,
or by the asFloat functions, when the receiver is out of range. 

For example,
    0 ln
or,
    3.5e39 asShortFloat

Can be caught (see Number >> trapInfinite:) to automagically convert to INF.
Can also be proceeded, to get an INF.
