This is sort of a general question, but something that might come up in a job interview.  If someone asked you to write an ascii to integer function in pseudocode for them, how would you go about doing it?

You do not specify what kind of maping from ascii to integer you want
something as simple as
integer = ascii;
would get an integer  in many languages.
You may want  ord(substr(string,0,1)) at another level of abstraction
If you want to convert an ascii string representation of a decimal numnber, it might be something like
integer=0;
for character in string do
  integer = 10 * integer + ord(character)-ord('0')
end
