float bug on latest linux release?

Catarina Mota
Hi,

I'm not running linux, but several people at a workshop I'm attending noticed that the latest release is not accepting floats (we've been using fractions to get around it).

Cheers,
Catarina

thanks for reporting this problem back.

I think the problem is that a locale that is using a comma instead of a dot
as decimal character was set. the problem should go away when openscad is
run e.g. with 'export LC_ALL=C' set.

I've fixed that now in svn trunk. So the bug should be gone in the next
release..
