Convert Integers to Strings

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Gary Christopher, Jan 5, 2009.

  1. Howdy,

    New to Ruby and looking for some help.
    I would like to prompt the user for input String of single [0 - 9 incl]
    digits e.g 57
    and convert these to word format and store as a single string e.g
    fiveseven

    What way is best to go about doing this.

    Should I create a hash of {1 => "one".....} and then iterate through the
    input, swapping digits that match a key with the key's value.

    Thanks a lot
