    Default Convert decimal values to english text

    Hi
    I'm looking for a method that could translate decimal values to string,english text. For example currency values.
    600.50 so it should read as "six hundred and 50".
    Most of the method that I found can only read for integer.
    Can anyone give me an idea or suggestion how can I do this?
    Thank you

    How would you say: 600.051?

    You could cast a double to int to get the 600.
    How may decimal places do you want to handle?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    I only want to handle two decimal place because i'm using this for converting currency. It would be six hundred and fifty one.
    By the way,I found a solution using java.text.DecimalFormat.
    Thank you for you help,I really appreciate it.

    What about 624.50? Would that be six hundred and twenty four and fifty?
