num2str() question

Hi. Sorry if this is a FAQ, but I'm having trouble using num2str(). For instance, look at this.

octave:16> r = 1; num2str(r)
ans = 1
octave:17> r = 10; num2str(r)
ans = 10
octave:18> r = 100; num2str(r)
ans = 100
octave:19> r = 1000; num2str(r)
ans = 1000
octave:20> r = 10000; num2str(r)
ans = 1e+04

Why doesn't num2str() return 10000 instead of 1e+04 in the last instance? And how do I make it return 10000?
