inconsistent behavior of float_of_string (compare to "ints"_of_string) #6296
Original bug ID: 6296
float_of_string does not understand the octal string representation where other conversion functions do.
need to document the behavior or to fix it.
also I just discovered (reading strtod manpage) the syntax "0x1p8".
would need either documentation of accepted formats (like is it done with int conversion) or link to documentation of underlying c function
