  Description     : routines to convert IEEE floats to and from strings

The library provides routines to convert IEEE single and double floats
to and from string representations. It offers at lot of flexibility with
respect to the conversion format: shortest, fixed, precision or
exponential representation; decimal, octal or hexadecimal basis; control
over number of digits, leading/trailing zeros and spaces.

The library consists of efficient conversion routines that have been
extracted from the V8 JavaScript engine. The code has been refactored
and improved so that it can be used more easily in other projects.
