# [texhax] Counters as ordinal numbers

Hello

I need to have a counter that counts like "first, second, third, fourrth,
...".  (say up to ten thousandth). I can create a counter and put all of
these in it just like:

\def\@mycounter#1{%
\ifcase#1\or First\or Second\or Third\or ...\else\@ctrerr\fi}

\def\mycounter#1{\expandafter\@mycounter\csname c@#1\endcsname}

But it will be  very annoying to put each single of these in \@mycounter. I
was wondering if you know a better solution.

Thanks
