# Sage says that a divergent integral converges

When i use the command N(integrate(e^(-x)/x,x,0,oo)) Sage returns 37.2, but this integral obviously diverges. Is there any way to fix this?

Sage says that a divergent integral converges

Thanks for reporting!

Actually, it is a known bug, see trac ticket 14274.

Sympy seems not able to solve it either, though it is able to see that the integral of `1/x`

diverges at 0.

```
sage: import sympy
sage: x = sympy.Symbol('x')
sage: from sympy import oo
sage: sympy.integrate(1/x,(x,0,oo))
nan
```
