infinity
     n : time without end [syn: {eternity}]
Source: WordNet® 2.0


infinity n. 1. The largest value that can be represented in a
   particular type of variable (register, memory location, data type,
   whatever). 2. `minus infinity': The smallest such value, not necessarily
   or even usually the simple negation of plus infinity. In N-bit
   twos-complement arithmetic, infinity is 2^(N-1) - 1 but minus infinity
   is - (2^(N-1)), not -(2^(N-1) - 1). Note also that this is different
   from "time T equals minus infinity", which is closer to a
   mathematician's usage of infinity.
