Prints the English name of a number

The 'number' script prints the English name of a number. You can print names of extremely large numbers (e.g. 1e1234567). 'Number' can be run on the command line, or as a CGI script when run as 'number.cgi'. It prints names in both the American and European naming system, and can print the decimal expansion of a number in either naming system.
