There's currently no good way to do this, but there will be soon.
Quite a few people have asked for this. The only thing you can do
currently is to read/write floating-point numbers in human-readable
decimal form via get/print or printf. This is fairly slow and you
might lose some precision.

In 1.5 beta-2, which should be available in a day or two, there
will be fast, perfectly accurate, conversion routines that will
enable you to read/write 32-bit or 64-bit binary floating point data,
i.e. routines to convert to/from sequences of 4 or 8 byte-values that
are in the IEEE format used by Intel machines.

There will also be a few other enhancements. I'll post a message
when beta-2 is ready. It should be the final beta before the
official release of v1.5 later this month.
