During an activation calculation I encountered a result in the ASCII
output file which was "6.4308-100". I think I am not the first who had
such a result and therefore I found it worth being discussed in the
I assume it should be "6.4308E-100"
In post processing programs it could cause troubles. Either it is seen
as expression and the result is seen as -93.57, or the program crashes.
In the first case it might even go unnoticed resulting in bad results.
To my mind the format should be changed either by reducing the digits
after the comma resulting in a free character for the missing E or the
values smaller than 0.0001E-99 should be set to 0.0.
