The Tcl code can be fonund here:
http://tcl.cvs.sourceforge.net/tcl/tcl/generic/tclStrToD.c?view=markup

What Tim says gives another reason for using that code - it means that
currently, the compilation of the same source code on two platforms can
result in a code which does different things.

Just to make sure - IEEE does require that operations on doubles will do
the same thing on different platforms, right?
