Bug#182574: libc6: The pow() function gives incorrect results on special cases (nan, inf...)



Package: libc6
Version: 2.3.1-13
Severity: normal

I get the following results:

1) pow(-inf, nan) = inf
   The result should be nan (however, pow(inf, nan) is correct: nan).

2) pow(-inf, 0.5) = inf
   pow(-inf, -0.5) = 0
   The result should be nan in both cases.

3) pow(-1, inf) = 1
   pow(-1, -inf) = 1
   I think that the result should be nan in both cases.
