Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide

Result too large


This is a programming error or a data input error.


Ask the program's author to fix this condition.

Technical Notes

This error indicates an attempt to evaluate a mathematical programming function at a point where its value would overflow or underflow. The value of a programming function in the math package (3M) is not representable within machine precision. This error could occur after floating point overflow or underflow (either single or double precision), or after total loss of numeric significance in Bessel functions.

This message can indicate Result too small in the case of floating point underflow.

To help pinpoint a program's math errors, use the matherr(3M) facility.

The symbolic name for this error is ERANGE, errno=34.
