IsNumeric routine from Code Snippets Database has been re-written.
The IsNumeric routine from the Code Snippets Database has been re-written. Previously it had only recognised floating point numbers that use the full stop (dot) character as the decimal separator. In locales that don't use that separator, strings containing valid floating point numbers were being rejected as invalid. The re-written routine handle decimal separators from different locales correctly.
