itoa may or may not be part of your system as it is not in the standard library. If you wish to do this in C++, here is an example that shows how to do it.
      http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/iostream/istringstream/istringstream/
// using istringstream constructors.
#include <iostream>
#include <sstream>
#include <string>
using namespace std;

int main () {

  int n,val;
  string stringvalues;

  stringvalues = "125 320 512 750 333";
  istringstream iss (stringvalues,istringstream::in);

  for (n=0; n<5; n++)
  {
    iss >> val;
    cout << val*2 << endl;
  }

  return 0;
}

the sample phoffric provided converts string to integer. you need to use ostringstream for the reverse conversion:

   std::ostringstream oss;
   int i = 12345;
   oss << i;
   std::string si = oss.str();

if you need char array the last statement turns to

  const char * pcs = oss.str().c_str();

int val = 10;
char buff[10];
int radix = 10;

itoa(val, buff, radix);

printf("value: %s\n", buff);

//prints value: 10
