  • Sooo... are you saying that

    1. SFIO really does come with an (IEEE-float-aware) bit-level implementation of floating point output?
    2. There is no %efg support at all in the MacOS Classic "libc"? (whatever that means in MacOS Classicese...)
    3. both?
    • SFIO does implement efg, though not very well (there are a few bugs, at least in the SFIO version we use, which is 98 IIRC). Mac OS's standard library has no efg support, or so I am told.
      • That MacOS standard library does no efg is a bit hard to believe. But having never programmed a single C program in MacOS Classic, who am I to argue :-)
        • Yeah, I found it a bit odd too. However, if I ever feel inclined to try to completely sever the tie to sfio, I'll look more into it. We have PerlIO working now, which is the real objective.
