How to display Currency in Indian Numbering Format in PHP

I have a question about formatting the Rupee currency (Indian Rupee - INR).

For example, numbers here are represented as:

1
10
100
1,000
10,000
1,00,000
10,00,000
1,00,00,000
10,00,00,000


Refer Indian Numbering System

I have to do with it PHP.

I have saw this question Displaying Currency in Indian Numbering Format. But couldn't able to get it for PHP my problem.

Update:



How to use money_format() in indian currency format?

Answer

You have so many options but money_format http://php.net/manual/en/function.money-format.php can do the trick for you

Example

$amount = '100000';
setlocale(LC_MONETARY, 'en_IN');
$amount = money_format('%!i', $amount);
echo $amount;

Output

1,00,000.00

Note

The function money_format() is only defined if the system has strfmon capabilities. For example, Windows does not, so money_format() is undefined in Windows.

Edit 1

Pure PHP Implementation .... Works on any system:

$amount = '10000034000';
$amount = moneyFormatIndia( $amount );
echo $amount;

function moneyFormatIndia($num){
    $explrestunits = "" ;
    if(strlen($num)>3){
        $lastthree = substr($num, strlen($num)-3, strlen($num));
        $restunits = substr($num, 0, strlen($num)-3); // extracts the last three digits
        $restunits = (strlen($restunits)%2 == 1)?"0".$restunits:$restunits; // explodes the remaining digits in 2's formats, adds a zero in the beginning to maintain the 2's grouping.
        $expunit = str_split($restunits, 2);
        for($i=0; $i<sizeof($expunit); $i++){
            // creates each of the 2's group and adds a comma to the end
            if($i==0)
            {
                $explrestunits .= (int)$expunit[$i].","; // if is first value , convert into integer
            }else{
                $explrestunits .= $expunit[$i].",";
            }
        }
        $thecash = $explrestunits.$lastthree;
    } else {
        $thecash = $num;
    }
    return $thecash; // writes the final format where $currency is the currency symbol.
}
