string conversion, format functions
Wed Apr 23 22:52:45 CEST 2003
I have a string "123" and want to convert it to an integer
or float, and vice versa.
In python, I go to the string module and
there are string.atoi(), string.atof(), and str(number).
So, by habit, I went to string module doc in Erlang
I could not find the counterparts of these functions. Where are they ?
B = 3.
I want to form a string "0003".
** Can io:format generate such a printout ?
** Can it be redirected to a string ?
** If not, how do folks in Erlang world do this padding?
