I think it woul be easier to do the code than explain the grammar... ;)

OK. By weekend, I can send you a Java class that gets a number and returns 
the string. The languages I'm better at (or least worse) are Java and VB. My 
current project at work is in VB so I prefer to do it in Java. Well... I 
would always prefer to do it in Java :)

Sorry for not doing it until weekend, but I've been working 12+ hours per 
day... Cannot get home and code...

Have fun! (I'll have more fun when you get my class :)
