Does any one know the value of 0^0?

This is a discussion on Does any one know the value of 0^0? within the A Brief History of Cprogramming.com forums, part of the Community Boards category; indeterminate sounds like another way to say undefined. So my statement stands....

    "Sounds like" isn't "is".

    Indeterminate means that the thing itself is undefined, but can be assigned a value in some specific context, like the limit of an expression that would result in 0/0.

    Idiot. When you learn calculus (which tells you how to solve the problem), you can talk. Until then, STFU. You are talking out of complete ignorance.

    You need L'Hopital's rule or some algebra (depending on the problem).
