How to parse a string to integer and float in Python 3.8?

Jun 17 2021 34

Hello everybody, I just studying Python 3.8 and I have a string number, how can I convert it to int, float data type?

- "2"  ->  2(int)

- "5.234" -> 5.234 (float)

- "5.234" -> 5 (int)

Please help me, how can I convert them?

    You can use float() and int() to help convert them. For example:

    >>> a = "2"
    >>> b = "5.234"
    >>> int(a)
    2
    >>> float(b)
    5.234
    >>> int(float(b))
    545
    >>> int(b)
    545

    Hope it helpful for you!

    You can create a common function help convert string to int or float as below:

    def num(a):
        try:
            return int(a)
        except ValueError:
            return float(a)

    I still use it in my project. And it work fine for me.
