I decided to write a C entry mainly to learn C, but I've also submited it here.

I'd like to thank Eiyeron and KermM for helping me with this entry, because I wouldn't have gotten it to work witouth them.
My projects
 - The Lost Survivors (Unreal Engine) ACTIVE [GameCommandoSquad main project]
 - Oxo, with single-calc multiplayer and AI (axe) RELEASED (screenshot) (topic)
 - An android version of oxo (java)  ACTIVE
 - A 3D collision detection library (axe) RELEASED! (topic)(screenshot)(more recent screenshot)(screenshot of it being used in a tilemapper)
Spoiler For inactive:
- A first person shooter with a polygon-based 3d engine. (z80, will probably be recoded in axe using GLib) ON HOLD (screenshot)
 - A java MORPG. (pc) DEEP COMA(read more)(screenshot)
 - a minecraft game in axe DEAD (source code available)
 - a 3D racing game (axe) ON HOLD (outdated screenshot of asm version)

My output currently looks like this (for input 703450):
Code: [Select]
seven hundred three thousand four hundred fifty is 41
fourty-one is 9
nine is 4
four is magic
The aspects I'm not sure about are these:
- Do I need a period at the end? (2-6 additional bytes, depending on language, so not too bad)
- Is the correct number written out in letters, or should I mangle the other one instead, or both?
- Do I need an upper-case letter at the start of each line? (That would be a pain to do!)
- The spaces and dashes should not be counted, right?

1. No.
2. Do either, both, or none. I don't care, but to qualify for the -70% bonus, at least one of the numbers must be converted to a word.
3. No.
4. "forty-one", to me, is the same as "forty one". Dashes or spaces, it doesn't matter.

Be fast, though! You only have until the end of the day!

Okay then, my SysRPL, Java and C entries are done. My fourth question was actually meant in a different way ("thirty-one" is 10 chars, but all the examples look like we shall count the 9 letters only), but your answer reminded me that the dash can be replaced by a space, simplifying my programs a little. Thanks for that. :)
By the way: "forty" or "fourty"? I hope the latter is acceptable (despite my spell-checker complaining about it ... English is not my first language) because the former would break my concept of reusing the same lookup table for 13-19 and 2x-9x, and "forteen" looks just wrong.

Forty. Fourteen.

Also, WE'RE DONE! Befunge Numbers in a while.
