    Question Numbers in Text Format

    I want to make a program in C that will convert any numbers in Text i.e. if any user enter 123 the program will show as "ONE HUNDRED TWENTY THREE". There will be another program that will show 123 as "ONE TWO THREE".

    Pls, make these programs, I need it urgent.

    Thanks.

    You want to make a program or do pay somebody who will do it for you?
    The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    const char* eng[] = {
    	"ZERO", "ONE", "TWO", "THREE", "FOUR", "FIVE", "SIX", "SEVEN",
    	"EIGHT", "NINE"
    };
    
    void english(int n)
    {
    	int i, j, m;
    	char buff[16];
    	if (n < 0 && n)
    	{
    		printf("MINUS ");
    		n = -n;
    	}
    	i = 0;
    	do
    	{
    		m = n&#37;10;
    		buff[i] = m;
    		n /= 10;
    		i++;
    	} while (n);
    	while (--i >= 0)
    	{
    		printf("%s ", eng[buff[i]]); 
    	}
    	putchar('\n');
    }
    
    
    int main()
    {
    	int n;
    	printf("Number: ");
    	scanf("%d", &n);
    	english(n);
    	return 0;
    }

    Manav: It is part of this forums "Rules" to not post direct solutions to things that are likely to be "Homework assignments". Instead, we should help the original poster LEARN how to do it - learning by copying is not particularly useful, as it only teaches the use of CTRL-C/CTRL-V, which isn't what programming is about.

    Don't worry!
    If I were his teacher. I would ask him to explain it. And if he can explain it well.
    Well ... then I would not mind it at all if he has taken this solution from such message board.

    Not all teachers will ask though, and those who do may still miss students who copy blindly.

    And the good thing about it is that it's not doing exactly what he asked for .
    if any user enter 123 the program will show as "ONE HUNDRED TWENTY THREE"
    Your solution will only show "ONE TWO THREE".

    But otherwise, nothing else to say on the code itself.

    sorry. don't want to steal other person's thread. but.
    all teachers should be aware of a thing named Google.
    and they must also be aware of the thing named cboard.
    so if they just blindly accept the code submitted by their students.
    then at least they know what they are doing. and at least they don't care about the student.
    a student in the hands of such teacher is - hopeless already!

    i hope i could express it well.

    sorry for this off topic!

    Writing a program is harder than understanding it. So even if the OP can understand the code, that's not sufficient. Google isn't perfect, especially if the question was phrased so it's hard to detect with a search. Finally, the OP could delete their post so there's nothing to detect (although I copied this thread's just in case).

    The main thing to understand i think is if you post a complete answer to a bone question you are not helping anybody really

    OP is supposed to write that him/herself.
    We will assist, not create the program.

    Hey!
    It was so easy! Before, I was just wondering how to write
    Then I just started on it, and now I have written it (after 30 minutes).
    It can parse numbers from 0 to 999 only!
    I will not post the code here. Nor in PM
    The OP doesn't seem to be interested now.
    But thanks for the idea buddy. I made both the programs in under 30 mins.
    If you want you too should be able to make it without too much effort!

    And for help ... there are all the board members! ( Except me )
