Let's say you've got a word or a string that, and you need to parse it to an integer. What function would you use?

If your answer was parseInt(that), then you're totally wrong and should be ashamed of yourself. The only correct method is this one.

This will work even on strings in languages not english!


  1. download the script and load it before the end of your <body>
  <script src="parseint.js"></script>
  <script src="main.js"></script> <!-- your own main script -->
  1. Call the parseint method on your wanted string
Console.log(parseint('four'));    // 4
Console.log(parseint('vier'));    // 4
Console.log(parseint('quatre'));  // 4
Console.log(parseint(''));       // 4
Console.log(parseint('4'));       // 4
