Comma Separated Values in CAS

RE: Comma Separated Values in CAS

The cas does not have thousand separator because the CAS does only has one "transform to string function", and does not know when a string will be used to "math" and when it will be used for display only.

The problem lies in the fact that, although 1000 separators are nice for display, they are completely unuseable for editing (see my previous post). As a result, it becomes critical, when tranforming a number into a string to know what it will be used for after. Pure display? 1000 separator are OK. Used in a command line or edition? Not ok...

It took us over 1 year to add 1000 separators to the home side of things and remove all the bugs/bad use cases...
