What is wrong?

    For some reason if I take this code out my script works just fine just not formatted as a price. Well, I have nearly this exact code ( just different variables ) in another script and it works just fine. I was wondering if I did something wrong, all it says is "called to un-defined function money_format()". This is a standard function and should work just fine but if I use this code it doesn't work.

    Code-
    settype ( $price, "double" );
    $price = money_format( '%i', $price );

    I suspected you were testing on your local PC before uploading it and you were seeing the error there. Clearly I was wrong :D

    No, I used it on the server. Does FreeBSD not have the capability?
    I made a special testing area on my website since I many times use multiple computers and I'm on one that isn't a server, if I make changes I just make a note of it and re-back up my website's files so I have them in a convenient place.

    It's 4.3.10, not the newest but should be able to have the money_format function. At least according to the php.net documentation.

    Hmmm, ok let me post a test file to one of my hosts and see what it does there.

    Funnily enough it doesn't work on my server either :(

    Sure, and thanks for all the help. I wonder what it could be. Doesn't it work on php4.3.10?

    It should work on 4.3.10 +, but doesn't work on any of the three hosting companies I use.

    Have you tried using "number_format()" it can do the same job.

    Perhaps they made a mistake in the documentation.

    Yeah but if the price's last digit after the decimal is 0 it just drops it. Is there another alternative?

    Why not explode the string after using number_format:

    
      $number="$1.2"
      list($dollars,$cents)=explode(".",$number);
      if (strlen($cents)==1)
        $cents.=$cents."0";
      if (strlen($cents)==0)
        $cents="00";
      $number=$dollars.".".$cents;
    
    Code (markup):

    Are you using number_format($var,2);

    It works for me $var="123" or $var="123.001" both display as 123.00
