Converting strings to ints

Postby ChrisN » Wed Jul 16, 2008 4:44 pm

Is there any way of converting strings, for example from a comman line input, to ints?

using input = File.openText("A-small.in")
s = input.readline
aNumber = input.readline to int
print aNumber


raises:
error: Cannot convert type "string" to "int"

have a look at the .net doc on Int32.Parse.
Tho cobra conversion would be int.parse

This indicates a gap in the How To's. Maybe one that covers casting, parsing and string splitting and joining.
