Hi,

I find Bob Ippolito's mochinum module to be very useful :

   http://mochiweb.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/src/mochinum.erl

Particularly when representing floats as strings, as detailed here :

   http://bob.pythonmac.org/archives/2007/12/17/printing-floats-with-erlang/

I also notice that the source file or beam, or some code based on it
gets duplicated in a lot of open source projects.

I think it would be useful to add these functions to erlang itself.
What do other people think?

Colm
