    Code:
    int IntValue = 64;
    char CharValue = (char)IntValue;
    
    char* CharArrayValue = "123";
    int IntValue2 = atoi(CharArrayValue);

    static_cast
    reinterpret_cast
    const_cast
    dynamic_cast

    arent we forgetting conversion operators and non-explicit single argument constructors. Also constructors with default params.

    There is much more to this subject than first meets the eye.
