NAME

dozword − convert dozenal integers into words

SYNOPSIS

dozword [ -p -s -n decimal number ]

DESCRIPTION

dozword converts a dozenal integer, such as "X44", into words, such as "Ten biqua four four", according to either System Dozenal Nomenclature (SDN) or the Pendlebury system. Fractional parts are ignored, because they are totally uninteresting (they can be pronounced simply, for example, "dit four seven nine elv").

If the number of digits in the number exceeds EE EEEE, dozword will silently truncate that number, and thus incorrectly print its output. Thus, the answer will be incorrect. Otherwise, however, very large integers won’t ruin the program, and beneath this limit, any integer will be correctly output.

OPTIONS

−s

Use the System Dozenal Nomenclature (SDN) system for the power words. This is the default; you don’t need to specify this option if you don’t want.

−p

Use the Pendlebury system for the power words.

−n number

Takes as an argument the number you wish to convert. Useful if you don’t want to take your data from standard input.

BUGS

None known at this time.
