i s there a limit of exp(x) for which it will only give zero as answer.

In one of my equation exp(-921) is multiplied by a large constant but the answer is zero. I observe exp(-921) returns zero so even multiply it with large no. will return zero.

Is this a limitation of Matlab or there is any alternative to get the small values also.

Thanks
