# strings can be converted using [float](http://julia.readthedocs.org/en/latest/stdlib/base/#Base.float) and [int](http://julia.readthedocs.org/en/latest/stdlib/base/#Base.int):

# available number format characters are [f, e, g, c, s, p, d](https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia/blob/master/base/printf.jl#L15):
