Implementation code of shell script nicenum BER

Time:2021-6-9

Given a number, shows it in comma-separated form.Expects DD and TD to be instantiated. Instantiates nicenum. or, if a second arg is specified, the output is echoed to stdout.

No more nonsense. First of all

Let’s analyze this script later. Now mark it first.
