# ziffer – Conversion of punctuation in maths mode

The package modifies the behaviour of characters in maths mode so
that:

‘.’ is used as a one-thousand separator (as is
common in Germany)

‘,’ is used as a decimal separator (as is common
in Germany)

‘--’ is represented with spacing as appropriate to
such constructs as ‘1.000,--’.

These conversions may be switched on and off.
