Return a string holding the external representation of the number n in the given radix. If n is inexact, a radix of 10 will be used.
Return a number of the maximally precise representation expressed by the given string. radix must be an exact integer, either 2, 8, 10, or 16. If supplied, radix is a default radix that may be overridden by an explicit radix prefix in string (e.g. "#o177"). If radix is not supplied, then the default radix is 10. If string is not a syntactically valid notation for a number, then
string->numberabove, but taking a C string, as pointer and length. The string characters should be in the current locale encoding (
localein the name refers only to that, there's no locale-dependent parsing).
