    Cool from char to int

    Hi, peeps. I was in the middle of ceatinga saved game feature to my game, when I ran into a problem. Is there a way to read a char and translate it to an int. Example "1" = 1. Is there a way to do this without annoying checks and case statements?

    Subtract the ASCII value of zero from the ASCII value of the character. Since the chars are stored as ASCII codes anyway, just subtract '0'
    from your character to convert.
