Idiom #146 Convert string to floating point number

Extract floating point value f from its string representation s

(read-string s)
(Float/parseFloat s)
float f = std::stof(s);
var f=float.Parse(s);
import std.conv;
float f =!float;
f = num.parse(s);
read (unit=s,fmt=*) f
import "strconv"
f, err := strconv.ParseFloat(s, 64)
read s :: Double
let f = +s
String floatString = "14.5";
float x = Float.parseFloat(floatString);
double y = Double.parseFloat(floatString);
$f = floatval($s);
uses sysutils;
f := s.ToExtended;
f := StrToFloat(s);
my $f = $s;
f = float(s)
f = float(s)
import locale
s = u'545,2222'
locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, 'de')
f = locale.atof(s)
f = s.to_f
let f = s.parse::<f32>().unwrap();
let f: f32 = s.parse().unwrap();
