It is still 1, since it was not divided.

Since you can't really divide up zero, try using numbers that are close to zero, like 1/0.001 then try 1/0.00001 and keep making the number smaller, watch what happens as you get closer to zero.

I think this poll is flawed. I am lead to believe that division by zero is, in fact, illegal!

I ran this script:
#!/usr/bin/perl
print "1/0 == " . 1/0 . "\n";

And it gave me the following output:
Illegal division by zero at ./dbz.pl line 2.

Therefore I drew the conclusion that division by zero is illegal. So illegal, in fact, that the Perl compiler won't even compile the script!

1/0 = undefined

The limit of 1/x as x goes to 0 is infinity.
