Fourier transform of a constant

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I am trying to prove that Fourier Transform of a constant is a Dirac delta function.I have fed f(x)=1 in the formula of Forward Fourier transform and got F(k)=int{exp[-ik*pi*x]}dx

I know that this is delta function with arguement k.But cannot prove it.It's sure to give infinity at k=0.But,for other values of k I am not getting the integral=0.So,an attempt through the way of definition fails.Can anyone help me?
