    Question converting numbers to letters??

    Hi everyone,
    nice to be here... :-)

    So yes, this is a homework I have to hand in, that would let the user convert a floating point number to letters. I just don't know how to start, and most important how to go about that conversion!!!!!
    So I'm off course not waiting for the codes, but just a little hint on where to start!!

    Thanks

    1) Convert your float to int
    2) Convert your int to char (HINT: chars are ints)

    I haven't learnt aol() (what does that do?)

    What I did at first is creating an char array to store the input, after validating the input I will (somehow) convert the number into letter string. Does this make sense?
