NUMBER(6) BSD Games 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).
