26// The maximal length of digits a double can have in base 10.

31// Converts the given double 'v' to ASCII.
32// The result should be interpreted as buffer * 10^(point-length).
34// The output depends on the given mode:
35// - SHORTEST: produce the least amount of digits for which the internal
36// identity requirement is still satisfied. If the digits are printed
37// (together with the correct exponent) then reading this number will give
38// 'v' again. The buffer will choose the representation that is closest to
39// 'v'. If there are two at the same distance, than the one farther away
40// from 0 is chosen (halfway cases - ending with 5 - are rounded up).
41// In this mode the 'requested_digits' parameter is ignored.
42// - FIXED: produces digits necessary to print a given number with
43// 'requested_digits' digits after the decimal point. The produced digits
44// might be too short in which case the caller has to fill the gaps with '0's.
45// Example: toFixed(0.001, 5) is allowed to return buffer="1", point=-2.
46// Halfway cases are rounded towards +/-Infinity (away from 0). The call
47// toFixed(0.15, 2) thus returns buffer="2", point=0.
48// The returned buffer may contain digits that would be truncated from the
49// shortest representation of the input.
50// - PRECISION: produces 'requested_digits' where the first digit is not '0'.
51// Even though the length of produced digits usually equals
52// 'requested_digits', the function is allowed to return fewer digits, in
53// which case the caller has to fill the missing digits with '0's.
54// Halfway cases are again rounded away from 0.
55// 'DoubleToAscii' expects the given buffer to be big enough to hold all digits
56// and a terminating null-character. In SHORTEST-mode it expects a buffer of
57// at least kBase10MaximalLength + 1. Otherwise, the size of the output is
58// limited to requested_digits digits plus the null terminator.
