I would require help to convert a string number to integer but the value must remain same. For ex:
- Code: Select all
This above prints 2147483647
. But I want to print the exact value as entered in $str
variable but should be of integer type.
Thanks in advance,

Use a data type large enough to hold the number and you won't have a problem. For int your threshold is around 2 billion. if you use float or double, you expand the size of the container and it works properly.
