I just want to know if there's a better solution to parse a number from a character in a string (assuming that we know that the character at index n is a number).
String element = "el5";
s = ""+element.charAt(2);
int x = Integer.parseInt(s);
//result: x = 5
String element = "el5"; int x = Character.getNumericValue(element.charAt(2)); System.out.println("x=" + x);
The nice thing about
getNumericValue(char) is that it also works with strings like
५ are the digits 5 in Eastern Arabic and Hindi/Sanskrit respectively.
