strtof function in C
Parses the C-string str(assumed) interpreting its content as a floating-point number (according to the current locale ) and returns its value as a float. If endptr(end pointer) is not a null pointer, the function also sets the value of endptr to point to the first character after the number.
strtof(const char* str, char **endptr) Parameters: str : String object with the representation of floating point number endptr : Reference to an already allocated object of type char*, whose value is set by the function to the next character in str after the numerical value. This parameter can also be a null pointer, in which case it is not used. Return Value : On success, the function returns the converted floating-point number as a value of type float.
