Getting 01 output versus 1

Can anyone please tell me how I can get a double digit output of 01 rather than just 1.

I have an output that looks like this: 1,22,2,45,6
and would like it to look like this: 01,22,02,45,06

I know it someting very silly and can't wait to see the response.

Thank you,

There are several ways to do this.

. . . and what about

System.out.printf("%02d", number);

Even shorter!
I agree. Here's the link:
