that's right. Unfortunately, the behavior of strtod(3) depends on the
locale setting, more precisely the LC_NUMERIC environment variable as
described in locale(7).

If it was possible to set the locale on a per-thread basis, we might be
able to make this configurable for the user. I suspect locales can only
be set on a per-process basis, but I don't know for sure.

Hope this helps. Regards,
