Silly me.

One of my own plots contained column arithmatic where I divided by a column value. Value goes to zero, then poof. I restructured my maths.

I'm sure this has happened to people before,
but I have not found the reference.

While reading a data file, I get this error, and orca exits. Perl does not treat it as an FPE, so I seem unable to catch it signal-wise, and I see no evals at line 134 (or 3). I guess it is a piece of dynamically created code.

Can anyone give suggestions for tracking the problem down? Is some plot colulm arithmatic doing this?

kind regards,
Richard Grevis
