strtod is localized

When read or writing floats from or to files, do not forget that in ANSI C, convertion of floats to/from string is localized. A text file written with ‘.’ as radix caracter won’t be readable in a locale were radix caracter is ‘,’. Use LC_NUMERIC to ensure you use the good radix caracter.
