The source for ``The Name of a Number'' program is available:
To run it in CGI mode for a web site, rename it as number.cgi. To put a sane limit on amount of HTTP traffic that large numbers can generate, the number.cgi CGI script limits the size of numbers it will process. To work with extremely large numbers of any size, run the program in non-CGI mode as number.
This page is dedicated to my good friend and brother, Chet Leland Noll who taught me the "trick" of counting when I was just 3 and introduced me to a lifetime of mathematics. Thanks Chet!
Special thanks goes to Jeff Drummond for answering my many questions about Latin.
