If so please implement following in C correctly:

void delete_values_above_x(double x)
   char statement[256];
   snprintf(statement,sizeof(statement),"DELETE FROM sometable WHERE x > %f",x);

When in current locale the decimal point is "," and x=3.14...

You can't do it in reasonable simple way in C.
It is design issue of standard C and C++ library.
