    Introducing... the search feature! Shhhh!
    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    i wrote this program awhile ago when i was just beginning to program - i would probably do many things different (use switch instead of if ladder that's one).

    anyway i hope it is a help to you.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <string.h>
    
    int gname1(char, char n0[]);
    int gname2(char, char, char n11[]);
    
    int main () {
        
        char line[20], name[20];
        unsigned int x, y = 0, digits;
        
        printf("Enter number to convert into text: ");
        fgets(line, 20, stdin);
        
        digits = strlen(line) -1;
        
        /* check if input is valid */
        for ( x=0; x < (strlen(line) -1); ++x) {
            if ((line[x] < 48) || (line[x] > 57)) ++y; 
        }    
        
        
        if (y != 0) printf("Input is invalid");
        else {
            for ( x=0; x < (strlen(line) - 1); ++x) {
                /* if digits is 2, 5, 8 send two characters to process */
                if ( line[x] != '0') { 
                    if (digits == 2 || digits == 5 || digits == 8) {
                        gname2(line[x], line[x+1], name);
                        --digits;
                        ++x;
                    }    
                    else {
                        gname1(line[x], name);
                    }
                
                    printf("%s", name);
                
                    if ((digits == 3 || digits == 6 || digits == 9) && name[0] != '\0') {
                        printf("hundred ");
                        if (line[x+1] != '0' || line[x+2] != '0') printf("and ");
                    }    
                    else if (digits == 4) printf("thousand ");
                    else if (digits == 7) printf("million ");
                }
