HI, Is it possible to add a number to an integer without actually 'adding'. Let me show you what i mean
//heres the integer
int number =5;

//heres another one
int number_2 = 1;

//is it possible to do something like
number = number & number_2;

//so instead of number == 6 it would == 51?

Thanks

You could do something like number = number * 10 + number_2;, that's definitely the easiest way. It really depends on the context though; it won't work if number_2 is greater than 9.

EDIT: Since you're using C++, a stringstream will do the trick.


std::stringstream ss;

ss << number << number_2;
ss >> number;

that will only work for constants
so it would be easyer to type 5336


Yep

But that takes away all the fun
