And yet, if you discretise them using Fourier theory, using sampling as a
sharp cut-off frequency, with a finite block size, they become quite
normal signals, with finite energy. For each block size there is a
different spectrum which is just a continuation of the spectrum of any
Dirac impulse with a smaller block size. I think that this is a fair
enough version of Dirac in the discrete domain. (see my previous mail in
this thread for more details)
