Python's int(~) constructor returns an integer object from a string or number.

Parameters

1. x | number or string | optional

The number or string to be converted to an integer object. Defaults to 0.

2. base | number | optional

The base-n literal to use when the input is a string. Valid values are 0 and 2 - 36. Default is 10.

Return Value

An integer object.

Examples

Basic usage

To create an integer object from the string '18' :

a = '18'
b = int(a)

18
<class 'int>

Base parameter

To create an integer object from '132' (expressed in base-5):

a = '132'
b = int(a, 5)

42
<class 'int'>

'132' in base-5 is the equivalent to 42 in base-10.
