This program demonstrates more practice using arrays and switch statements.

REQUIRED KNOWLEDGE FOR THIS PROGRAM

Integer Arrays
Cin.get
Isdigit
For loops
While Loops
Switch Statements - How To Use

Using “cin.get(),” this program first asks the user to enter in a number (one at a time) that they wish to translate into words. If the text which was entered into the system is a number, the program will save the user input into an integer array. If the text is not a number, the input is discarded. After integer data is obtained, a for loop is used to traverse the integer array, passing the data to a switch statement, which translates the number to text.

This program is very simple, so it does not have the ability to display any number prefixes. As a result, if the number “1858” was entered into the system, the program would output the converted text: “One Eight Five Eight.”
