Thanks Blitz for replying, but I had found that web site already. The function is that web ste is strtod() "string to double", however i need _strtold() "string to long double", I ha tried to modify the strtod() code but I am losing percision. I am obviously doing something wrong. Can anyone tell me how to modify the code for long double? the code can be found athttp://tcl.apache.org/sources/tcl/compat/strtod.c.html
thanking you in advance, Cremin.
