Thank you very much for considering the patch. -Wall indeed requires to add 
  warning: suggest parentheses around comparison in operand of &
  warning: suggest parentheses around assignment used as truth value

If there are also other changes, i would like to ask you to make your modification
available, mainly due to a possible further discussion.

Let me also suggest a modification of my original proposal. It contains a cycle
           while (*(replace++) = *(p++)) {
If the number has no trailing zeros, but contains an exponent, this cycle
shifts the exponent by 0 positions, which means that it copies each of its
characters to itself. This may be eliminated as follows
           if (replace != p) {
               while (*(replace++) = *(p++)) {
