It seems strange to me that to_char(1000,'999,999') works (it returns
1,000), but the reverse doesn't.
I want to convert a formatted number with group separators, but I don't
know how many digits it has: should I count the digits myself and adapt
the mask (which is a customization and thus entered by the user)?
