Regex for numbers on scientific notation?

I'm loading a .obj file that has lines like

vn 8.67548e-017 1 -1.55211e-016

for the vertex normals. How can I detect them and bring them to double notation?


The standard library function strtod handles the exponential component just fine (so does atof, but strtod allows you to differentiate between a failed parse and parsing the value zero).
