RFC 17: Dynamic Array Sizing

have you considered using apr (Apache Portable Runtime)? It does this
and many other things (including connection pooling) and apache
(albeit this is part apache2) is already a requirement for mapserver.
I will also check to see if they have atof or similar functions so
that (maybe?) we can solve tamas' issue with locales.

I will dig out a couple of howtos from my rss feeds and send you the links asap.
The home page for apr is at: apr.apache.org.

Best regards,
