                 Summary: inv(inf) behaves differently from inf^-1, 1/inf,

octave:1>  inv(inf)
warning: matrix singular to machine precision
ans = Inf
octave:2>  inf^-1
ans = 0
octave:3>  inf\1
ans = 0
octave:4>  1/inf
ans = 0

I'm not sure whether this is a bug since "inf" is not a finite value, and I'm
not sure whether it is required that inv() should behave exactly as ()^-1 .
Also, I'm sorry that I have no Octave 4.2.0 installed so I could not help to
test this on the new released version.
