Hi. I think glibc (as many other libc implementations, to be clear), doesn't
deal correctly with this corner case:
float f = 0.0;
char s = "100ergs of energy";
int p = sscanf(s, "%f", &f);
printf("%f %d\n", f, p);
It outputs "100.000000 1", and should be "0.000000 0". See EXAMPLE 3 in
This is stupidity on the ISO C committee side which goes against existing
practice. Any change can break existing code.
