Comment Very much unfinished (Score 5, Informative) 107

Did anybody notice that it doesn't, for example, do client mode at all yet? Or it does, but it doesn't implement cert validation at all which makes it useless as a client at the moment and therefore client mode is disabled. That along with delegating all the actual crypto to other libraries means the entire thing doesn't actually *do* much. No wonder it's only 6kLOC.

Comment Re:I want my division by zero errors to be errors (Score 1) 1067

And how many times exactly have you been happy to get "Infinity" as a result? Pretty much every time I've gotten that there has been an error in my logic. IEEE can define division by zero to return 42 for all I care, but on the mathematical level I don't believe there is a universally good definition for it. Sometimes infinity can kind of make sense (e.g. the slope of a vertical line), but not universally. Therefore, I vote for undefined.
