Class FortranFormat

java.lang.Object
org.openscience.cdk.math.FortranFormat

public class FortranFormat extends Object
Converts a String representation of a Fortran double to a double.

A modified version of the atof method provided in the Core Java books by Cay S. Horstmann & Gary Cornell. The main difference here is that we scan for Fortran double precision characters ('D' and 'd') which often cause the C versions of atof to barf.
