# CTAN Update: ionumbers

Date: April 17, 2014 8:08:46 AM CEST
Christian Schneider submitted an update to the ionumbers package. Version number: v0.3.3 License type: gpl Summary description: Restyle numbers in maths mode Announcement text:
This update fixes a problem with MnSymbol (and potentially other packages changing the font in math mode). Ionumbers assigns macro definitions to certain characters in math mode. Previously, the original mathcodes of these characters were hard-coded into ionumbers and did not match those defined by MnSymbol. For example, '-' in the input turned into '+' in the output, if used with MnSymbol. The update uses the mathcodes that the characters have at the beginning of the document instead. Thanks to Michael Sebastian Hitziger for reporting this problem.

## ionumbers – Restyle numbers in maths mode

ionumbers’ stands for ‘input/output numbers’.

The package restyles numbers in maths mode. If a number in the input file is written, e.g., as $3,231.44$ as commonly used in English texts, the package is able to restyle it to be output as $3\,231{,}44$ as commonly used in German texts (and vice versa). This may be useful, for example, if you have a large table and want to include it in texts with different output conventions without the need to change the table.

The package can also automatically group digits left of the decimal separator (thousands) and right of the decimal separator (thousandths) in triplets without the need of specifing commas (English) or points (German) as separators. E.g., the input $1234.567890$ can be output as $1\,234.\,567\,890$.

Finally, an e starts the exponent of the number. For example, $21e6$ may be output as $26\times10\,^{6}$.
