string = afc_format_number (amount, currency)

This function formats the amount of money passed to this function, in to the currency passed in the second parameter. This function uses the information from the "currencies" database table. This function DOES NOT convert amounts from one currency to another, it simply prints the amount to look like that amount of money in the specified currency.


amount (string) - The amount of money. This can obviously be a number with decimal places, but it may be NUMBERS ONLY, and no special characters like commas or dollar symbols. (a decimal point is considered part of the number and is therefore allowed.

currency (string) - The 3 letter currency code.
