    Converting a string to double...

    I know this topic has probably been discussed many times... and search didn't turn up anything useful...

    I am trying to add up amounts sourced by a data file. So the string would have to be converted to a double and added to a total double.

    Is this safe to do in C? Will i loose precision? Am I approaching this challenge correctly?

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
