    Default Convert Currency to Words in English

    The program will accept a double-data type input from a user. Function of the program is to convert the number inputted to its equivalent words.

    eg.

    12345.67 = Twelve thousand and three hundred and forty five dollars and sixty seven cents

    765.43 = seven hundred and sixty five dollars and forty three cents


    Oh. By the way, using the following methods on the java.lang.String is much appreciated.

    * charAt()
    * length()
    * trim()
    * valueOf() - overload
    * toCharArray()
    * indexOf(String str)
    * indexOf(String str, int fromIndex)


    Does anybody have the idea here?

    Hi,
    Try with the following steps.
    1. Get the double value and convert into string.
    2. Check if that String say str has a "."
    3. If str has a "." then crete 2 substrings of str say str1=765 and str2=43 by using indexOf(".") & susstring() methodsand if it does not have then u can leave it as it is.
    4.Check the length of each string say 3 for 765.
    5.Use string tokenizer or using a normal string methods get each digit.
    6.then use concat() function of string with each digit and the value like dollars/cents depending on the the place of the digit.

    Go ahead All the Best...
    To finish sooner, take your own time....

    When concat the strings you have think about additional strings too, like 'thousand' 'hundred' and so on.
