Python defines type conversion functions to directly convert one data type to another. This article is aimed at providing the information about converting a string to int and int to string.

Converting a string to an int

If we want to convert a number that is represented in the string to int, we have to use the int() function. This function is used to convert a number in given base to decimal.

Syntax: int(string, base)

Parameter :

string : consists of 1’s and 0’s

base : (integer value) base of the number.

Example:

Python3

# string data
n = '321'
print('Type of num is :', type(n))
  
# convert using int()
n = int(n)
print('So Now, type of num is :', type(n))

                    

Output:

Type of num is : <class 'str'>
So Now, type of num is : <class 'int'>

Converting an Int to string

Converting an int datatype to string can be done with the use of str() function.

Syntax: str(object, encoding=’utf-8′, errors=’strict’)

Parameters:

object: The object whose string representation is to be returned.

encoding: Encoding of the given object.

errors: Response when decoding fails.

Example: 

Python3

hdv = 0x1eff
print('Type of hdv :', type(hdv))
  
# Converting to string
hdv = str(hdv)
print('Type of hdv now :', type(hdv))

                    

Output:

Type of hdv : <class 'int'>
Type of hdv now : <class 'str'>
