[racket] Formating Printing of Real Number

I am very sorry to have the docs of my formatter in MsWord. I am afraid I am
a very bad scribbler. My response is a little bit late, I fear, but I was on
a trip without my computer(s).

You mean 10 pages of Doc-s including greek letters and plots are
overwhelming? :-) 

Perhaps Ryan should have invested his energy into scribbling these docs
instead of unstabling a formatter.

Probably should be a standard Racket Collection library.

Jos Koot has a formatting library that deals with fp numbers. But I couldn't
find it on planet.
