    thanks twm,
    I was looking for a string function that would do what atoi does. It seemed logical to have one, but couldn't find it in my book!

    Thanks guys! Yes, before the conversion I check the user's input to make sure that each character is a digit. I've used atoi() before but was thinking that you passed it a character and not a string....

    I need to convert a string (that is made up of all digits) to an integer so that I can manipulate in mathematically. I know I've done it before but can't find how I did it now.

    len=strlen(buffer);
    if(len!=0)
    buffer[len-1]='\0';
