    Many times we require to format a number to output with thousand place comma separator, here is a function will help you do so.

    PHP:
    function numcomma ($value)
     {
         if(
    strpos($value,"."))
         {
             
    $decimalval substr($value,strpos($value,".")+1);
             
    $value substr($value,0,strpos($value,"."));
         }
     
         
    $length strlen($value);
     
         for(
    $i=3;$i<($length);$i=$i+3)
         {
             
    $k $i*(-1);
             
    $chunks[count($chunks)] = substr($value,$k,3);
         }
     
         
    $inarray count($chunks)*3;
         
    $leftout $length-$inarray;
         
    $leftout substr($value,0,$leftout);
     
         
    $finaltext $leftout;
     
         
    rsort($chunks);
     
         for(
    $i=0;$i<count($chunks);$i++)
         {
             
    $finaltext .= "," .$chunks[$i];
         }
     
         if(
    strlen($decimalval)>0$finaltext .= "." .$decimalval;
     
         return 
    $finaltext;
     }
