strtod[edit | edit source]

#include <cstdlib>
double strtod( const char *start, char **end );

The function strtod() returns whatever it encounters first in start as a double. end is set to point at whatever is left in start after that double. If overflow occurs, strtod() returns either HUGE_VAL or -HUGE_VAL.

x = strtod( "42.0is_the_answer" );

results in x being set to 42.0.
