Subject: Re: [Caml-list] Strange behaviour of string_of_float
I know what a float number is from my numerical analysis course :-).

In any case, what is the suggested way to serialize/deserialize a
float number in OCaml? The Sexplib, for example, suffers the same
problem of the string_of_float function:.

My intent is to extract an ASCII representation of an OCaml float
value so that it can be used to recreate *exactly* the same value, at
least on the same architecture.
