ksh shell: convert a string to integer

is there another way to convert a string to a integer in shell (KSH)

 

my workaround :

 

var="128.00M"
var=$(  echo ${var} | awk '{print int($0) }' )

 

regards

That type of string?  var="128.00M" is not a numeric value, especially with that "M".

 

If you just want to chop off that "." what follows, you can do:

num=${var%.*}

Re: ksh shell: convert a string to integer

hello,

 

so i can convert with your input :

 

typeset -i num 

var="128.00M"

num=${var%.*}

 

and i will forget the awk
