// Return the shortest correct representation.
// For example the output of 0.299999999999999988897 is (the less accurate but
// correct) 0.3.
// Return a fixed number of digits after the decimal point.
// For instance fixed(0.1, 4) becomes 0.1000
// If the input number is big, the output will be big.
// Return a fixed number of digits, no matter what the exponent is.
// Converts the given double 'v' to ASCII.
// The result should be interpreted as buffer * 10^(point-length).
// The buffer will be null-terminated.
// The input v must be > 0 and different from NaN, and Infinity.
// The output depends on the given mode:
// - SHORTEST: produce the least amount of digits for which the internal
// identity requirement is still satisfied. If the digits are printed
// (together with the correct exponent) then reading this number will give
// 'v' again. The buffer will choose the representation that is closest to
// 'v'. If there are two at the same distance, than the number is round up.
// In this mode the 'requested_digits' parameter is ignored.
// - FIXED: produces digits necessary to print a given number with
// 'requested_digits' digits after the decimal point. The produced digits
// might be too short in which case the caller has to fill the gaps with '0's.
// Example: toFixed(0.001, 5) is allowed to return buffer="1", point=-2.
// Halfway cases are rounded up. The call toFixed(0.15, 2) thus returns
// buffer="2", point=0.
// Note: the length of the returned buffer has no meaning wrt the significance
// of its digits. That is, just because it contains '0's does not mean that
// any other digit would not satisfy the internal identity requirement.
// - PRECISION: produces 'requested_digits' where the first digit is not '0'.
// Even though the length of produced digits usually equals
// 'requested_digits', the function is allowed to return fewer digits, in
// which case the caller has to fill the missing digits with '0's.
// Halfway cases are again rounded up.
// 'BignumDtoa' expects the given buffer to be big enough to hold all digits
// and a terminating null-character.
