20.11 Parsing of Numbers

This section describes functions for "reading" integer and floating-point numbers from a string. It may be more convenient in some cases to use sscanf or one of the related functions; see 12.14 Formatted Input. But often you can make a program more robust by finding the tokens in the string by hand, then converting the numbers one by one.

20.11.1 Parsing of Integers  Functions for conversion of integer values.
20.11.2 Parsing of Floats  Functions for conversion of floating-point values.
