    It's simple in C++ too.

    I linked you to the FAQ of the parent site. Are you going to make me do it for you or are you going to make an attempt to do it yourself? If you read the FAQ about converting a string to an int, you should have a good place to start. Stringstreams can parse the most complex strings if you think about what you're doing.

    You want to go to a place where people will spoon feed you like a baby? Excellent! Good riddance

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
