HSSFCell.getNumericCellValue() cannot handle large/small values

           Summary: HSSFCell.getNumericCellValue() cannot handle large/small
                    values
           Product: POI
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: HSSF
        AssignedTo: poi-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: scott.klein@l-3com.com


By forcing the interface to a double, the user cannot parse extremely large or
small numbers - for example "3.11E-09" is returned rounded to 0 as a Java double.

Perhaps a way to retrieve "number" cells as strings (so they can be turned into
BigDecimals, etc), or give the user more options as how the numeric data should
be handled.
