References

  • The message "Use of undefined constant" is an actual error reported by PHP when a string literal is not enclosed within quotes (most often when dealing with an array index); however, it is not a "Fatal Error", but only a "Notice" (which would normally not be displayed by default).
  • 4294967296 is 2^32, one more than the maximum value of a 32-bit unsigned integer (probably the most common size of unsigned integers). Since this number is equivalent to 0 when stored as a 32-bit integer (signed or unsigned), that might be the joke.
  • [NaN] stands for Not a Number, and is used in floating-point computing to represent the result of an operation with invalid inputs, such as zero divided by zero.
  • The glitched item description references the seal-clubbing club, which has the item number 1.
