I've found the following bug/feature with guile-1.8.7 and would like to solicit for comments. Is this a guile bug? What's the proper work-around?
I've got a C program that does a setlocale (LC_ALL, ""); printf ("%f", 0.2000);
In the de_DE.utf8 locale, the result of the print is 0,2000 using a comma, since the comma is the "decimal separator" in most European locales. This numeric string is then passed to scm_eval_string() which pukes on it, because it does not
recognize 0,2 as a valid number. This can be confirmed at the guile command line interpreter, which pukes on guile> (+ 0,2 0,2) but works fine on (+ 0.2 0.2) even in the de_DE locale.
Is this really the expected behaviour? Is there a suggested work-around?
