Hi.
Have a preatty easy question. I need the simplest way to do this:

I have Strings like: 12399, 12500, 12204, 1208, 07
I need them to be like this: "123/ 99", "123/ 00", 122/ 04", "12/ 08", "/ 07"

Please note that the last two is valid.
The pattern is "xxxx/ yy" where yy is mandatory.

Any ideas?
