The yuqk documentation was updated.

There isn't any practical way to turn off all the checking for 
infinities in the debug compile of yuqk to allow for the setting of 
+-inf via val().

So, in the non-debug compile of yuqk and all recent official POV-Ray 
releases you can set +-inf values via val() and do things like 
comparisons. However, the +-inf values are likely to cause undetected & 
unreported problems should they make it into downstream math - or into 
any down stream functions. Use with caution.
