Absolutely - I always thought it deserved the R&D designation more than a bunch that still have it and yet are rock solid (e.g. parser primitives!?).
But it works well if
you make sure you feed it a float (not a string as it's labelling suggests) and
you make sure the 'format specification string' is valid before you connect it.
I don't even bother figuring out the format strings for it any more... I use a higher-level module I made ages ago to get the job done. It uses a purgable module to generate the specification string so it adds virtually no overhead to exported files.viewtopic.php?f=12&t=5929&p=44762#p44762
