Values are missing for math.huge and math.pi

In the documentation for the math library, the values for the properties math.huge and math.pi are missing. Although math.pi can be found by executing the following command on the command line:


This results in the value of 3.141592653589793. However, when I try to do this with math.huge, all I get for the result is inf which is infinity. The documentation says that, and I quote:

Returns the value HUGE_VAL, a value larger than or equal to any other numerical value.

But what is the C/C++ constant HUGE_VAL equal to? The issue stems from the fact that when attempting to enter a numeric value in the Studio properties editor, the numeric fields will not accept inf as a number. So after running a command on the command line to manually set the property to math.huge, I found the following:

math.huge = 179769313486231570814527423731704356798070567525844996598917476803157260780028538760589558632766878171540458953514382464234321326889464182768467546703537516986049910576551282076245490090389328944075868508455133942304583236903222948165808559332123348274797826204144723168738177180919299881250404026184124858368

Which is basically 21024. This number should be in the documentation for easy copy and paste into properties.

Hello @Maelstorm_1973, thank you for bringing this to our attention. I just put this value into our documentation, so it should be live very soon.
