STOI is a CAOS command which converts between strings and integers.
Syntax: STOI str (string)
Returns the integer made from converting str. str is in the format
[nn] may be any length. In the event of an error 0 is returned.
If str corresponds to something outside the integer range (which is ) the numbers wrap, so STOI "21474835648" == -2147483648. Note that this behaviour is different to the CEE's when such numbers are found in injected code.
If a string of the above format begins str but something is attached to the end, the string is truncated at the end of the well-formatted portion. Note that this means a string representing a float will be truncated instead of rounded. (Hence, STOI VTOS va00 is a roundabout way to get
This command is exactly equivalent to C's
