Re: Conversion functions.

I managed to compile g_ascii_strtod() in my own code.
I obtain the same result though. I use another function
that I want to look how it is coded and it is the
function g_ascii_isdigit(). I have searced for it in
glib-2.12-9 but I didn't find it...

strtod() is locale dependent, g_ascii_strtod() is not (well,
sort of, it uses strtod() so if the locale or strtod()
implementation is weird, g_ascii_strtod() can be still
affected).  This is what g_ascii_strtod() is all about.
Your locale uses decimal comma or something like that.  As
if I didn't warn...

I also tried to copy g_ascii_strtod() (from glib-2.12-9) into
my code but it didn't compile

My crystal ball says you are missing

  #include <locale.h>

but it's a bit cloudy.

and I didn't quite understand
the if-statement if(decimal_point_pos) {} where decimal_point_pos
was declared as const char *decimal_point_pos.
I thought that a pointer was an address in memory and I haven't
seen a pointer in a if-statement like that before.

That's a common idiom.  NULL is zero and zero is false.
Anything else is nonzero and therefore true.

I guess I have to write my own conversion-function.

Good luck with that (I still think a bug in the program and
not in GLib is the most probable cause).
