Dear friends,

I need an utility Java program that will convert a decimal number to wordings.

For ex.. 120.65 to be converted as one hundred and twenty point sixty five

Kindly provide your help.

Is this a homework question? JavaRanch is not a code mill.

So, what have you tried yourself and where do you get stuck? With assignments like these, it helps to first think about the problem itself - describe in normal language how you would solve this. When you're clear about how you're going to do it, you can start thinking about writing Java code.

This is also very much like the CattleDrive assignment 4a and 4b.

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
