mathematician or engineer, since fortran is mentioned, so you're
probably right. But in years gone by, I sometimes wrote regexes for
others in a technical department, and the original problem spec almost
always had to be tightened, to exclude stuff which hadn't been thought of.

123 123.0 123. -456 0.123 .123 789
then what we had:

If signed integers are also needed, we'd probably have to ditch the
precondition, since /\v(-?|\.@<!)<\d+>\.@! introduces an ambiguity which
defeats that alternative. (It's rotten regex construction.)
This, though, finds "-456", rather than "456":
but again finds "123" " 789", as before. Maybe that's OK?
Remembering is for those who have forgotten.
