How do I split up an integer in different parts? For example how do I get an integer 731245 to 73, 12 and 45? I can''t figure it out how to operate it. int sum = 731245; short a, b, c; a = ? b = ? c = ? (ex.)134578 integer to 13, 45 and 78? ------------------------------- Anton Karlsson Klingis Entertainment Games with silly humor Aleph One (Marathon Open Source) | My Homepage Packa bajs med winzip!

do you mean how do you divide it up into units, tens, hundreds, thousands etc?

if you do

int remainder = sum % 10;

it gives you the remainder as a result of dividing by ten. That should point you in a useful direction.

% is the modulus operator. There is a whole branch of mathematics concerning number theory which comes up with some amazing theories and proofs using modulo.

c = sum % 100;
sum /= 100;
b = sum % 100;
a = sum / 100;

(I think ... LOL)
