I'm programming a package for Max-Plus Algebra, where the constant
\[Epsilon} is the same as -\[Infinity]. I want Mathematica to operate with
it, like it does with Pi. While calculating a function it knows that the
Symbol Pi is 3.14..., but within the Output Pi is kept as Symbol. I want
the same for \[Epsilon}. Does anybody knows a solution for that? Thanks.
