    Question casting

    hi there good people,
    i would like to ask a simple question :>)

    spouze you have this:

    int number = 1;
    TCHAR something[10];

    and i would like to know how do i cast:

    something = number;

    so...

    cout<<something;

    would produce:

    1

    it's seems simple enough, i just don't know the language that well,
    thankx in advance for your kind time.

    the easiest way is sprintf();

    sprintf(something,"%d",number);

    now something contains (the now character value) 1

    you can also do

    itoa(number,string,10);

    the 10 means the base you want to convert it to, for example a value of 16 would give an hexagesimal value into the string, this value can go up to 36
