# 第六章第三十七题（格式化整数）(Format an integer) – 编程练习题答案

6.37（格式化整数）使用下面的方法头编写一个方法，用于将整数格式化为指定宽度：

public static String format(int number, int width)

6.37(Format an integer)Write a method with the following header to format the integer with the specified width.

public static String format(int number, int width)

The method returns a string for the number with one or more prefix 0s. The size of the string is the width. For example, format(34, 4) returns 0034 and format(34, 5) returns 00034. If the number is longer than the width, the method returns the string representation for the number. For example, format(34, 1) returns 34.
Write a test program that prompts the user to enter a number and its width, and displays a string returned by invoking format(number, width).
