Converting data types?

How could I convert a data type from a string?

In my code I have various things being pulled in from a file split by line, two of which I am going to need to have as an integer. When looping through I am trying to save it to a variable with an Int data type. At this point it gives me an error saying I cannot convert it from String to Int.

Is there a way I can change that data type through a function of some sorts when saving it to the variable?

You need to cast the value to the type that you want.

Global s:String="10,20,30,40,50"

Function Main:Int()
    Local a:String[] = s.Split(",")
    Local r:Int = 0
    For Local j:Int = 0 To a.Length() - 1
        Print "index: "+j+" value: "+a[j]
    r = Int(a[2])+Int(a[1])
    Print a[2] + "+" + a[1] +" = " + r
    Return 0
End Function
