FAQ Topic - Why does 1+1 equal 11? or How do I convert a string to a number?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Javascript variables are loosely typed: the conversion between a
string and a number happens automatically. Since plus (+) is also
used as in string concatenation, « '1' + 1 » is equal to « '11' »: the
String deciding what + does. To overcome this, first convert the
string to a number. For example:
« Number(varname) » or « varname*1 » or « varname-0 » or
« parseInt(varnam e, 10) » or « parseFloat(varn ame) » or « +varname ».
Prompt and form control values are strings, as is the result from
a prompt window. Convert these to numbers before performing
addition.

When feeding the FAQ URL to that site, the only error it comes up with
(aside from newsgroups references) is to the javascript.faqt s.com site.
It times out (even me trying to open it).

Possible Error: 903 Connect Timeout http://javascript.faqts.com/

The actual URL of the page is now:

Although I did not get a "Page Not Found" from the original URL.

Do I need to convert string to integer in python? or it will do it for me (since dynamic type)? In my python script, I have this line: x /= 10; when i run it, I get this error: TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for /=: 'unicode' and 'int' I want to divide x by 10 and assign that value back to x.
