[REBOL] Translate this code into real Rebol?

From: sunandadh:aol at: 23-Jan-2002 6:35

Here's a useful function (I think). It "pretty prints" numbers and currency amounts. Examples of output:
>> pretty-print-number 123
== "123"
>> pretty-print-number 12345
== "12,345"
>> pretty-print-number $12345
== "12,345.00"
>> pretty-print-number -12345
== "-12,345"
>> pretty-print-number/brackets -12345
== "(12,345)"
>> pretty-print-number/brackets -$12345
== "(12,345.00)"
>> pretty-print-number/brackets -$12345.68
== "(12,345.68)" You can change the currency symbol, decimal and thousands separators, though not easily (eg for India) the digit groupings. It's typical of the sort of code I knock out in a hurry--in this case for the prototype I mention in an earlier post. It works, but it could almost be Basic. Is there a more Rebolish (Rebellious? Rebvolting?) way of doing this? = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = rebol [] Pretty-print-number: func [in-amount [Money! Integer!
