Short test program that tries to parse "350E-1"

Trying to parse "350E-1" should result in 35, but instead I get an exception thrown.

I have attached an example that runs using Microsoft .Net framework, but throws using Mono.

Fixed on master
Comment 2 Martin Midtgaard 2014-02-12 05:50:07 UTC
I don't see it fixed on master!


on line 295 there is a comment saying "negative exponent not valid for Int32" followed by a check for the negativity of the exponent. This code needs to be rewritten to support negative exponents.

If the commit have not been pushed yet, then I apologize and the bug can be set to fixed again, I would though like a commit reference in that case.
