how to print the numbers in words?

P: 1
Hi today (9th july 2006) i attended a technical interview in aspire systems. Two rounds of technical interviews. i well in the first round and did bad in the other.

The interviewer asked me to write a program to print and given number in words... say for example... if the input is 12345 then the output should be printed as "twelve thousand three hundred and fourty five" can someone help me how to write a program for this in c. waiting for the reply. thanking you.

hi there

well this problem is quite cool.

Well u can split the number this way.(I mean first determine number at the last at once place and proceed down last thousand or so)

here is the code

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. int num, temp,lastnumber[100];
  2.  
  3. num=12345;
  4. temp=num;
  5. for(int i=1;temp==0;i++)
  6. temp=temp/10;     //to check how many digits are there 
  7.                           // even if  zero is included in it like 10004
  8.                            // so number of digits is equal to i;
  9. temp=num;
  10. for(int j=1;i==j;j++)
  11. {
  12. num=num/10;   // since num is integer it will exculde the decimal
  13. num=num*10;   // exclude number will be replaced by zero
  14. lastnumber[j]=temp-num;
  15. temp=num;
well after code u will have no of digits in the number in ' i ' and the invidudual number in array lastnumber;

now is the tricky part of giving words.

well observe frist tewenty no " one two three ...... eleven , twelve .... twenty "
u have to make string array to store them (array set 1)
then array to store these
{twenty,thirty,forty.... ninety}(array set 2)

then check values a places of tens for examples. if it is 2 or above just conjugate arrayset1&2 to get desired value ;)

fot example 54
"fifty" from array set 2 and "four" from array set 1
to make "fifty four" then maybe add "thousand,lakh ....or nothing etc"

for number less than twenty use array set 1

directly
hope that helped u

note:-U may have to modify the script the decipher values having decimal :D

Hi,
I think the interviewer would have asked you to give the logic for this question becoz writing the program inside the interview cabin for this is very difficult, anyway I am giving the program, you just copy it and paste and run, it will work.

// even if zero is included in it like 10004
