php function to format number from 1 to 99 to 3 digits

Take any number 1 to 100 and format so there are always 3 digits.

Example:

$numberA = 1;
$numberB = 10
$numberC = 85

Now format each as:

$numberA = 001;
$numberB = 010;
$numberC = 085;

So need function that is smart and can take any number 1-99 and format to 3 digits. So if number happens to 100 or 150 then dont touch number!

A slightly modified version:
<?php 
function myFormat($str){
  if(is_int($str) && $str < 100 )
  {
    $str=substr('00'.$str,-3);
  }
  return $str;
}
echo myFormat(1).'<br>';
echo myFormat(10).'<br>';
echo myFormat(100).'<br>';
echo myFormat(1000).'<br>';
echo myFormat("FOO").'<br>';
?>

}

use

sprintf("%03d",$number) or  printf("%03d",$number)

Attached code prints,

000
005
025
100
150
<?php
echo sprintf("%03d",0),"\n";
echo sprintf("%03d",5),"\n";
echo sprintf("%03d",25),"\n";
echo sprintf("%03d",100),"\n";
echo sprintf("%03d",150),"\n";
?>
