ATOF(3)                    Linux Programmer's Manual                   ATOF(3)



NAME
       atof - convert a string(3,n) to a double

SYNOPSIS
       #include <stdlib.h>

       double atof(const char *nptr);

DESCRIPTION
       The  atof() function converts the initial portion of the string(3,n) pointed
       to by nptr to double.  The behaviour is the same as

              strtod(nptr, (char **)NULL);

       except that atof() does not detect errors.

RETURN VALUE
       The converted value.
