Is their anyway to take a int value and convert it into a string so I can display the value as a string? I need it for scores to be displayed as text. Thanks

_itoa <-- look it up

parameters are ( value, string, radix )
( radix = 10 for decimal, 2 binary and the such )

no error return, but be sure string is big enough to hold the result.


Edit: Don't forget to include stdlib.h

Assuming C or C++, any itoa function is non-standard (even if it exists it isn''t guaranteed to work in even remotetly the same way, or do the same thing).

C: lookup sprintf or snprintf (the latter is prefered).
C++: lookup std::stringstream or boost::lexical_cast.

If you aren''t using C or C++, please specify the language you are using.
