Convert English numbers to Arabic numerals

How can i convert English numbers being retrieved from the database to Arabic numeral symbols in PHP.

EDIT: Here're some examples of what Arabic numerals look like. I live in an Arab country, so please don't go around explaining to me what Arabic numerals look like. If you can help, good and well. I don't need bogus ideas.



If you are referring to what Wikipedia calls eastern arabic / indic numerals, a simple replace operation should do.

$western_arabic = array('0','1','2','3','4','5','6','7','8','9');
$eastern_arabic = array('٠','١','٢','٣','٤','٥','٦','٧','٨','٩');

$str = str_replace($western_arabic, $eastern_arabic, $str);
