Parsing text numbers with Int32.TryParse is unsuccessful when using exponents with decimals. "1.1E+1" is converted to an Int32 with value 11 on MS .Net, but is null in Mono.
Source used to reproduce problem:
public static void Main(string args)
IFormatProvider english = new CultureInfo("en-US");
NumberStyles style = NumberStyles.AllowDecimalPoint | NumberStyles.AllowExponent;
//In Visual Studio, TryParse sets value to 11. In Mono, value is set to null.
bool succeeded = Int32.TryParse("1.1E+1", style, english, out value);
Console.WriteLine("The converted text = " + value);
Console.WriteLine("TryParse returned null");
