Function Syntax

int to_int(boolean convert )

int to_int(float convert )

int to_int(string convert )

int to_int(item convert )

int to_int(class convert )

• convert is the boolean, int, string, item, class, effect, familiar, skill, or thrall to convert

This function looks for the best integer match to the specified input, which varies by datatype.

• boolean values return 0 for false and 1 for true
• float values return the same as they would with truncate()
• string values are parsed in several ways:
• fully numeric strings, optionally with + or - as the first character, return as they would for a float (commas are also ignored)
• all other strings return 0, with a message saying that the string is not a valid integer
• special datatypes (class, skill, thrall etc.) return their ID number as referenced in KoL.

Note: All the possible functions are not listed yet.

Code Samples

Following example shows basic to_int operations.

```boolean first, second;
float third;
string fourth;
item fifth;
class sixth;
effect seventh;
familiar eighth;
skill ninth;
thrall tenth;

first = true;
second = false;
third = 3.141592;
fourth = "933,029";
fifth = \$item[mae west];
sixth = \$class[disco bandit];
seventh = \$effect[smooth movements];
eighth = \$familiar[hobo monkey];
ninth = \$skill[smooth movement];

print(first+" gives "+to_int(first)+".", "blue");
print(second+" gives "+to_int(second)+".", "blue");
print(third+" gives "+to_int(third)+".", "blue");
print(fourth+" gives "+to_int(fourth)+".", "blue");
print(fifth+" gives "+to_int(fifth)+".", "blue");
print(sixth+" gives "+to_int(sixth)+".", "blue");
print(seventh+" gives "+to_int(seventh)+".", "blue");
print(eighth+" gives "+to_int(eighth)+".", "blue");
print(ninth+" gives "+to_int(ninth)+".", "blue");
print(tenth+" gives "+to_int(tenth)+".", "blue");```

It gives the following output.

```true gives 1.
false gives 0.
3.141592 gives 3.
933,029 gives 933029.
Mae West gives 1584.
Disco Bandit gives 5.
Smooth Movements gives 165.
Hobo Monkey gives 89.
Smooth Movement gives 5017.
