NUMBER(6) BSD Reference Manual NUMBER(6)
number - convert Arabic numerals to English
number [-l] [#]
The number utility prints the English equivalent of the number to the standard output, with each 10^3 magnitude displayed on a separate line. If no argument is specified, number reads lines from the standard input. The options are as follows: -l Display the number on a single line. number understands negative numbers (although they must be preceded by '--' if they are on the command line to avoid being mistaken for options) and numbers in scientific notation (e.g. 1.234E+05).
