Declaration: function HexToExtended (instr: string): extended;

The function HexToExtended converts the hexadecimal string instr into a extended precision floating point number. The string instr has to represent the IEEE format of a extended precision number.

Hint: As the extended data type is restricted to 64 bits under 64-bit operating systems HexToExtended is only available under 32-bit operating systems (Win32); for 64-bit systems (Win64, MaxOS) use HexToDouble instead.
