The only constructor for these two classes is the new() method, as
shown in the SYNOPSIS. This method takes no parameters.
All get methods in this module simply return infinity, positive or
negative. If the method is expected to return a string, it returns the
string representation of positive or negative infinity used by your
system. For example, on my system calling year() returns a number
which when printed appears either Inf or -Inf.
This also applies to methods that are compound stringifications, which return
the same strings even for things like ymd() or iso8601()
The object is not mutable, so the set(), set_time_zone(), and
truncate() methods are all do-nothing methods that simply return
the object they are called with.
Obviously, the is_finite() method returns false and the
is_infinite() method returns true.
There seem to be lots of problems when dealing with infinite numbers
on Win32. This may be a problem with this code, Perl, or Win32s IEEE
math implementation. Either way, the module may not be well-behaved
on Win32 operating systems.
