Converts a textual representation of a number to binary

'Ascii2Binary' reads textual representations of numbers separated by whitespace and produces the binary equivalents as output. Users select the type and size/precision of the binary output with command line flags. The program is useful for generating test data and linking programs that generate textual output to programs that require binary input. The number formats supported are those supported by strtod(3), strtoll(3), and strtoull(3).
