Do you know the algorithm for converting a string of digits, character by character, to a decimal integer?  For example,
if the user entered a string of the characters '1' '2' '3',
how would you convert those digits to another variable of type int with the value 123?
If you know, please email me at:  jose_gutierrez@usa.net
Thanks.

whoops.  Yes, you do want to subtract off 0.

int
CnvStr2Int(char *Str)
{
   int i = 0;
   while (*Str)
   {
      i *= 10;
      i += *Str++ - '0';
   }
   return i;
}
