I can give you another version which does not use any integer but decrement the pointer until it reaches the beginning of string, it is safe and platform independent.
Even better. I just wrote this down to the TODO list, but I you have already the code, it would be nice to see it.
Here you go. I quickly test it, it should work well. It also keeps the original pointer intact.
Thanks, looks good. I changed only one line: source_len = strlen(source);
But there is another problem, I discovered while looking at the code: I use this function to parse the hex colours for syntax highlighting. But strtod evaluates 0x0000ff to red, but it is blue. This means, strtod is simply the wrong function and I will remove it. Anyway thanks for the patch. ;-) I just have written the code to get the correct colour values and it is much easier, but therefore most of the syntax colouring will change and I want to keep it, so there is some work needed to adopt the colouring. Therefore, your patch will be applied as long as this issue is fixed.
