Zf currency format

see this:
I want to use this currencyformater, but it seems this is actually a plugin for zf/View.
see this: http://framework.zend.com/manual/2.3/en/modules/zend.view.helpers.html
I don’t use zf/View, so how can I use it standalone? may be I should instantiate a View class then use currencyformat as method or plugin. Please help.
