Convert text representation of binary integer to double value

converts the binary integer represented by `D`

= bin2dec(`binStr`

)`binStr`

to the equivalent
decimal number and returns it as a double-precision floating-point value.

If `binStr`

represents an integer greater than or equal to
`flintmax`

, then `bin2dec`

might not represent it
exactly as a floating-point value.
