	stringVal = System.Convert.ToString(doubleVal);
	System.Console.WriteLine("{0} as a string is: {1}",
		doubleVal, stringVal);

	try {
		doubleVal = System.Convert.ToDouble(stringVal);
		System.Console.WriteLine("{0} as a double is: {1}",
			stringVal, doubleVal);
	catch (System.OverflowException) {
			"Conversion from string-to-double overflowed.");
	catch (System.FormatException) {
			"The string was not formatted as a double.");
	catch (System.ArgumentException) {
			"The string pointed to null.");
