number Command


Displays the written form of a number.




The number command translates the numerical representation of an entered number to the written form. The largest number it can translate accurately contains 66 digits. For example:

twelve million.
three hundred forty five thousand.
six hundred seventy eight.

In the above example, you entered 12345678 and the computer translated it to twelve million three hundred forty five thousand six hundred seventy eight .

The number command does not prompt you for a number. Once started, it simply waits for input. To exit the program, press the Interrupt (Ctrl-C) or End Of File (Ctrl-D) key sequence.
