I'm looking for a dynamic length jQuery/javascript currency editor mask?

Hello, I tried to ask this question earlier, but after bumping my head a few times with the responses I've decided to ask the question in a different way:

I'm looking for a variable length (dynamic length) jQuery/javascript currency mask. The mask needs to do the following:

  • Pre fill with a '$' (dollar sign) any other pre-filled values are welcomed (commas, decimal point etc.)
  • Only allow numeric input and or commas and a decimal point
  • allow for any size number (within reason: millions is probably as far as it will need to go), but not force a minimum size number. i.e: you can enter $1,000,000,000.00 or you can enter $1.00 anything in between
  • I need to be able to plug and play: if i need the js file, I can get that

I would prefer code examples or jfiddle examples if possible. I don't work with and or use jQuery / javascript regularly so retro-fitting code to do what I need it to do is probably going to take more time than I'm willing to invest. Please help.
