Cut List Formatter

A few years ago, I wrote an article for Evolt about how to make fractions in a PHP script. Several times since then, I've gone back and pasted an ugly pile of numbers into a version of the script to produce a proper cut list. It would seem like the kind of thing that would be easy enough to do in Excel, but it doesn't really give me a nice looking list, and it just takes too damn many steps anyway. This script took me way too much time to create, but I learned a few more things about PHP in the process.

So here's the form. It will take a random stack of decimal numbers and output a collated, sorted list; rounded to the nearest fraction (1/2 through 1/64). More instructions and source code included.
