I am writing a math program, using variables of type double, and had initialized all variables to 0.0.
I now realize that not all results will be valid.
Is there a way to explicitly assign a variable of type double a non-numeric value, for example, "NaN", "Undefined", or "Unassigned" or something like that?
That way, when I read through the printout of results, I will realize the "NaN" results indicate a valid solution was not found. Whereas a 0.0 might not stand out.
I'd hate to have to go back and delete the initialization, and then re-assign 998 values just for the sake of 2 non-solutions.
Can this be done?
