I have the following code: class Float def to_dollars_with_cents format("$%.2f", self) end end This way in rails I can go: @summary.job_cost.to_dollars_with_cents The output comes out as: $1900000.00 I would prefer to format it as: $1,900,000.00 How would you suggest I do that?

The latest edition of Mastering Regular Expressions suggests the following regex for commafication: /(\d)(?=(\d\d\d)+(?!\d))/$1,/ Haven't tried look ahead in Ruby but I think this may work for you, perhaps with some special handling of the "cents" portion of the amount.
