Supporting the Euro

The Euro is in the process of becoming the primary (or only) currency of many European countries, and ColdFusion supports the reading and writing of correctly formatted Euro values. Unlike other supported currencies, the Euro is not tied to any single country (or locale) so the standard locale functions (the LS functions) typically used for localization cannot be used for the Euro. To address this problem, CFML features two Euro specific functions – use LSEuroCurrencyFormat() to display Euro values, and LSParseEuroCurrency() to convert strings containing Euro values into numbers. (Applies to: ColdFusion 4.5 (or later))
