The Lua 5.2 change document makes a suggestion that Lua 5.2 has "support for hexadecimal floats."


When I try:

     local ok, v = pcall(string.format," --[[ 0x%x ]]",5.5)
     if ok then return v else return "" end

It does not work and Lua complains about the value not being in proper range.  

I am OK with this behavior, but I wanted to know if the ~intent~ was to support it.
