Re: First --with-long-double, then _Decimal64!

There is at least one library in the wild which provides everything you

to add printf/scanf support, cf the "Customizing printf" section of the
glibc info manual for the printf support.

Google should point you at the available libraries.



The one library I could find was something that runs on HP-UX, which I
don't have at my disposal right now.  I could play with customizing
printf in glibc, but there is no way to customize scanf, and changing to
strtoxxx() would require retooling a half a dozen or so plugins
(probably bad).

I'll punt for now.  The best use of effort would be to add decimal
support to glibc.  Once that's done, a decimal arithmetic version of
gnumeric would be straightforward.  Thanks for the help.
