String to Int
Does anyone know if there is a way to convert a string to an int or a float.
string $mystring = "15";
int $myint = ($mystring - 1);
Maya doesn't execute this script because $mystring doesn't really have a int value. In BASIC I think this concept would be written as:
Dim mystring As string = "15"
Dim myint As integer = (val(mystring) - 1)
The VAL function works in BASIC but it won't work in MEL. Of course it doesn't seem like MEL hasa VAL function but is there an alternative?
I hope you didn't waste your time reading this line.
