This is implementation-dependent. I get a floating point exception when trying to perform a division by zero, using GCC.

AS allows function overloading, meaning you can have multiple functions with the same name only separated by their parameter types or counts. For example, you can do something like this:
double minGeneric(array< double > numbers) // Weird spacing because JCF insists on parsing HTML even within code tags
[ algorithm goes here ]

double min(double x1, double x2)
    return minGeneric({x1, x2});
double min(double x1, double x2, double x3)
double min(double x1, double x2, double x3, double x4)
Not sure if the code is going to work exactly like that, it's been a while since I actually did something with AngelScript.
