I am sorry to have a problem with your fine program:

gawk --version      => GNU Awk 3.1.3
cat /etc/issue      => Debian GNU/Linux testing/unstable
cat /proc/version   => Linux version 2.4.22-xfs (address@hidden)
                         (gcc version 2.95.4 20011002 (Debian prerelease))
                         #1 SMP Fr Sep 19 17:55:45 CEST 2003

The system is a Knoppix 3.3 self-loadable CD from www.knopper.net

locale              => address@hidden ...

My Problem with decimal-comma:

echo -0,1|gawk {printf "%f\n",$1} => 0,000000   !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This seems to be a real problem, because
echo -1,1|gawk {printf "%f\n",$1} => -1,100000  is OK.

Another Problem was, that I had to consult the sort-man-page(!) to find
a workaround, remembering, that I had Problems with Umlaut and sort
a few years ago. I work around the bug using decimal-point:

export LC_ALL=C; echo -0.1|gawk {printf "%f\n",$1} => -0.100000
