    Python: String to Int conversion?

    I've got a string from which i'm extracting a number. I can get the number out of the string as a string itself, but ican't get it to be an integer.

    How do you do this in python? I don't see facilities for casting, nor do i see methods in the string class that would let me do this. There's no way that the language doesn't let you do this.

    num = int(str);
    This function can also take an optional radix. You can find the documentation at 2.1 Built-in Functions (scroll down).
