octave-3.6.1:1> str2double ('Inf')
ans = Inf
octave-3.6.1:2> str2double ('inf')
ans = NaN
octave-3.6.1:3> str2double ('NaN')
ans = NaN
octave-3.6.1:4> str2double ('Naa')
ans = NaN
octave-3.6.1:5> str2num ('Inf')
ans = Inf
octave-3.6.1:6> str2num ('inf')
ans = Inf

Obviously str2double returns NaN for any read "error".
But that it is case-sensitive while str2num is not, is inconsistent.

I don't have ML at hand at the moment, but IIRC in ML both str2num and
str2double are case-INsensitive. Can someone check, please?
