    String to int using strtok and strtol

    I just had a quick question. I need to put a number from a string and convert it to int/long/or double. the number is a price so it has a decimal and 2 numbers after, such as 48.78. When i try to convert it it only converts the numbers before the decimal. How would I convert these into my int? thanks

    For answers regarding code, post the code in question.
    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.

    An int won't hold the decimals, because it is meant to store stricly integers.

    What you'd want is strtod, which will convert your string to a double, and then you store that in a double.
