I don't understand why I'm getting an 'inf' by raising E to a

writefln("ln(largest double) = %s", log(double.max)); //
writefln("e^710 = %s", exp(710.0));// inf, makes sense
writefln("ln(largest real) = %s", log(real.max)); // 11356.6
real t = 710.0;
writefln("e^710 = %s", exp(t)); //why is this inf???
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have functions in an
actual program that are giving me a headache due to this issue.
works for me as expected.
ln(largest double) = 709.783
e^710 = inf
ln(largest real) = 11356.5
e^710 = 2.23399e+308
Really? Is it my system?
I'm running windows 10, with an intel Core i7-4650, 64bit
I compiled with -m64 -g -unittest -main
