2260. The infinitive with ὥστε denotes an anticipated or possible result; but the actual occurrence of the result is not stated, and is to be inferred only. The negative is μή, but οὐ is used when the ὥστε clause depends on a clause itself subordinate to a verb of saying or thinking (2269). Cp. 2759.

a. ὥστε with the infinitive means as to, so as to; but with a subject necessary in English it must often be translated by so that.
