Sometimes it is preferable to treat `1 / 0' as an error rather than returning a symbolic result. If you pass the symbol num as the second argument to calc-eval, results that are not constants are treated as errors. The error message reported is the first calc-why message if there is one, or otherwise "Number expected."

A result is "constant" if it is a number, vector, or other object that does not include variables or function calls. If it is a vector, the components must themselves be constants.
