    Uncle! - How can I cast a string as int?

    I've got a char[] pointer:
    How do I convert the "43" to an integer 43?

    I need x to equal the integer that the string represents.

    I keep getting the location or the ascii value or some other number that doesn't make sense to me.

    I've tried every use of * that I could think of.

    Code:
    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    {
    	int i=0;
    	int x;
    	char *token[4];
    	token[0] = "43";
    	token[1] = "72";
    	token[2] = "17";
    	token[3] = "9";
    	
    	for(i=0;i<4;i++)
    	{
    		x = (int)(*token)[i];
    		printf("\n%d", x);
    	}
    	return 0;
    }

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    You should use strtol for better error handling.
