in thread (Golf) Formatting NumberTo Money

Why the need for sprintf ?? Am I missing something of importance?

If sprintf is not needed, here is one at 49 chars....
sub a{$_=pop;{s/(\d)(\d{3})(?!\d)/$1,$2/&&redo}$_.'.00'}
update: I am a little confused about the input, the post asks for an integer, which would not have any decimal places, but some of the input has a decimal place..
Should this handle input with decimal places, or should it just trust that the user submits integers only?
perl -e '$_=$0;split??;chop$_;$;=pop@_;$;++for(0..9060420);$_.=reverse +$;;print'

    To get the precision correct. Your script fails if you input 1234.56.
