French representation of numbers in Rust

The french-numbers crate for Rust allows the formatting of numbers in the French language in a Rust program.

A command-line utility allows to create those numbers without any programming:

% french-numbers --prefix --feminine 99 102
99 quatre-vingt-dix-neuf
100 cent
101 cent-une
102 cent-deux

% french-numbers 7293742897481
