I'm hoping someone can help me with something that I think should have
been easy for me to find.
I'm coding a C++ program. I have a need to format a number for currency
In Java, I would use this for a quick and dirty way of getting US
dollars (not checking for international stuff).
NumberFormat currency = NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance();
Then wherever I needed too I could.
currency.format(myNumericVariable) into a section of code that
displayed the return value as nice nifty US dollars complete
with $, decimal point and ,'s as appropriate.
I can't seem to find something similar as part of the standard c/c++
libraries, which I find hard to believe.
I'm sure I'm just not searching for the right terms, "NumberFormat",
"currency", "money", "formatting" etc..
Anyway, pointers appreciated..
