The () function follows the SI power of two convention.

The prefixes are:

1024

Upon successful completion, the value 0 is returned; otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.

The expand_number() function will fail if:

[]
The given string contains no digits.
[]
An unrecognized prefix was given.

Result doesn't fit into 64 bits.
