MirOS Manual: number(6)

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).
