Professor Saves Newbie Programmers From Shame

“Error: division by zero” is a commonly seen error for inexperienced programmers. The BBC reports that Dr. James Anderson, of the University of Reading, has finally conquered the problem of dividing by zero. His new number, which he calls “nullity” solves the 1200 year old problem that niether Newton nor Pythagoras could solve, the problem of zero to the zero power.
