Converting a string to an integer array

This is kind of a newbie question, but:
If I have a string which looks like this: "12,54,253,64"
what is the most effective/elegant/best/etc. way to convert it into an integer array (of course not including the ","s :-)
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks, I'll do that. I was looking at StringTokenizer and other things, but it seems they are not implemented in j2me?

  • Converting a String to an integer?

    i need to convert a string to an integer..i searched through the site but i didn't find anything...
    Is this conversion possible?

    You didn't look very hard - it's right in the javadocs:
    String s = "44";
    int x = Integer.parseInt(s);I'll leave the exception handling for you.

  • Converting a string to an integer - NumberFormatException

    I have 2 string arrays, one that olds names and one that holds id numbers. They are both stored in a file as Strings. I then read this file into my program and put split the strings up into an array.
    I then try to convert the id to integer inside my program like so:
    public void make_array(String[] car_info) {
                    // put in arraylist and change variable type to correct ones
                    final int ID_INDEX = 0;
                    final int TYPE = 1;
                    int cust_id = 22;
                    String type;
                    //convert to correct variable types
                    try {
                            //convert to string
                            cust_id = Integer.parseInt(car_info[ID_INDEX]);   
                    } catch (NumberFormatException e) { System.out.println(e); }
                    type = car_info[TYPE];
    }I then get the errors when i try this:
    java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "1"
    So the id was stored as "1", but i want to convert it to an integer value. Any ideas on why this happends? Also before i try to convert i output the id from the array and it is correct, after the conversion it is 0, obviously it is not working. But i'm not sure what is wrong.
    Any ideas?

    only works when the string is a single number suchas
    "1" or "4". If you try to use it with the input
    string as a longer one like "123" or "12" itcreates
    a NumberFormatExceptionYou must be mistaken. The value must not be what you
    think it is. Do some debugging:
    String strVal = car_info[ID_INDEX].trim();
    System.out.println("This is the number to be
    parsed -->" + strVal + "<--");
    customer_id = Integer.parseInt(strVal);That is a good idea, but it seems as though the string is fine: I did:
    [email protected]# cat cars
    this output:
    1,5,Renault Clio,Small Car,25,4,false
    As you can see the number 25 is a two figure number, and it looks good. I also output the number in the java program like this:
    System.out.println("the number is ------>" + twodigitnumber + "<------");This output the number: ------->25<---------- So there doesn't seem to be any wierd spacing or characters there.

  • Convert text string file to object array without outputting to file first?

    I have a log file that is just a text string file which is appended to with Out-File.  If the log file does not exist I pipe headers to it so that I can import the data as CSV.  For example:
    05-28-2014, 14:47, 132
    05-28-2014, 14:50, 94
    05-28-2014, 14:53, 72
    I'm using Microsoft Chart Controls to graph the data; it takes it in via CSV format.  If I'm going to chart all the entries in DATA.LOG I can simply IMPORT-CSV DATA.LOG.  But I only want to graph the 20 most recent entries.
    Perhaps there is a better way to do this, but to maintain the header and get the 20 most recent entries I'm using select.
    $DATA+=Get-Content .\data.log | select -first 1
    $DATA+=Get-Content .\data.log | select -last 20
    The problem is $DATA is of type system string so I can't use it directly with Chart Controls; I need to get it in CSV format first.  I can Out-File $DATA and then use IMPORT-CSV.  But I'd prefer to not have to use
    the temporary file.  Any suggestions on how I can accomplish this objective? 

    Import-CSV creates an object with the 'header' becoming the named values in the array.  The code I posted does the same thing as your 4 lines of code in one line of code:
    Much more quickly:
    PS C:\temp> (1..1000 | measure-command {import-csv .\data.log | select -last 2}).totalseconds
    PS C:\temp> (1..1000 | measure-command {[email protected]();$DATATMP+=Get-Content .\data.log | select -first 1;$DATATMP+=Get-Content .\data.log | select -last 2;ConvertFrom-CSV $DATATMP}).totalseconds
    You're more than welcome to use whatever code you want, but if you want to improve your Powershell knowledge you should try to understand the object model around which Powershell is built, it is powerful and efficient.
    I hope this post has helped!

  • 2 parts: 1) integer array to string 2) string out to a jTextField

    I am completely new to Java and Netbeans, but I'm writing my 1st
    application that takes a "hex" character input from a jTextField,
    then converts it to an "binary" integer array. I then do a lot of bit
    manipulation, and generate a new "binary" integer array.
    String myhex = jTextField1.getText();
        int len = myhex.length();
        int[] binarray = new int[len*4];
            for (int i = 0; i < len; i++) {
               if (myhex.charAt(i) == '0'){
               else if (myhex.charAt(i) ==
               // repeat for '1 to 9' and 'a-f/A-F'
               // generate new integer array(s) using various bits from binarrayI realize it might not be the best way to do the
    conversion, but my input can be of arbitrary length,
    and it is my first time trying to write Java code.
    All of the above I've completed and it works...(thanks Netbeans
    for making the gui interface design a real breeze!)
    So I end up with:
    binarray[0]=0 or 1
    binarray[1]=0 or 1
    binarray[2]=0 or 1
    binarray[n]=0 or 1
    Where n can be any number from 0 to 63...
    I then manipulate the bits in binarray creating a new integer array
    and for the sake of expediency let's call it "newbinarray".
    newbinarray[0]=0 or 1
    newbinarray[1]=0 or 1
    newbinarray[2]=0 or 1
    newbinarray[n]=0 or 1
    Where n can be any number from 0 to 63...
    I first need to know how to convert this "newbinarray" integer array to a string.
    In the simplest terms if the first three elements of the array are [0][1][1],
    I want the string to be 011.
    Then I want to take this newly formed string and output it to a jTextField.
    string 011 output in JTextField as 011
    I've scoured the net, and I've seen a lot of complex answers involving
    formatting, but I'm looking for just a simple answer here so I can finish
    this application as quickly as possible.
    Thorne Kontos

    Here's an example, not using NetBeans:
    import javax.swing.*;
    public class TextDemo extends JPanel
        public TextDemo()
            int[] newbinarray = {0, 1, 1};
            StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer();
            for (int value : newbinarray)

  • Saving an integer array into a .txt file

    hii, im only a beginner in java, so this is the only code i've learned so far for saving array elements into a file
         public static void saveNames(String [] name) throws IOException
                   FileWriter file = new FileWriter("Example\\names.txt");
                   BufferedWriter out = new BufferedWriter(file);
                   int i = 0;
                   while (i < name.length)
                             if (name[i] != null)
    However, this is only used for string arrays; and i can't call the same method for an integer array (because it's not compatible with null)
    I don't really understand this code either... since my teacher actually just gave us the code to use, and didn't really explain how it works
    I have the same problem for my reading a file code as well --> it's only compatible with string
         public static String [] readNames (String [] name) throws IOException
              int x = 0;
              int counter = 0;
              String temp = "asdf";
              name = new String [100];
              FileReader file = new FileReader("Example\\names.txt");
              BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(file);
              int i = 0;
              while (i < array.length && temp != null)                    // while the end of file is not reached
                   temp = in.readLine();
                   if (temp != null)
                        name[i] = temp;                    // saves temp into the array
                        name[i] = "";
              in.close();                                   // close the file
              return name;
    Could someone suggest a way to save elements from an integer array to a file, and read integer elements of that file?
    Or if it's possible, replace null with a similar variable (function?), that is suitable for the integer array (i can't use temp != 0 because some of my elements might be 0)
    Thanks so much!!!!!

    because it's not compatible with nullI think it should be okay to just remove the null condition check since there are no null elements in a primitive array when writing.
    Use Integer.parseInt() [] to convert the String into an Integer when you read it back and use Integer.toString() to be able to write it as a String.

    First I would like to suggest, DONT use the class names that have already being defined in JAVA, Here you have used, CALENDAR class, this approach should be avoided, If this class is in the same project where you also want to use the JAVA CALENDAR class, then you mite not be able to do so.
    As for the conversion, A simple way is that:
    You already know that the time cannot go more than 2 digits (Specifically not more than 24 hours in case of hours and 60 in case of minutes) and the (am) (pm) takes 2 more places, so what you can do is validate if the string size is 4 or 3, if 4 then take the first 2 substrings i.e. somestring.substring(0,2) and then use the Ineteger.parseInt(some string) method.
    similarly if the String size is 3 then take the first substring
    e.g. somestring.substring(0,1)
    This is how you can convert the string to the Integer and compare it, You can store it as an Integer Object and store it in the Vector If you want to.
    Hope this helps

  • Convert binary string into binary array

    Dear I am looking for a way to convert my ten bit string array into 10 bit array.
    Any idea?

    Yes, but you need to tell us in more details what you have and what you want.
    There is no "10bit string", they come in integer multiples of 8 bits. Some possible interpretations:
    Maybe you have a 2 character string (16bits). Do you want the 10 low order bits?
    Maybe you have a 10 character formatted string of zeroes and ones, one character for each bit.
    Do you have a long string and every 10 consecutive bits are one 10bit number that you want as integer?
    Please clarify!
    There is no "10bit array". Do you want:
    a boolean array with 10 elements, one element per bit?
    An integer array if ones and zeroes?
    An array of U16, each element corresponding to 10bits of the original string?
    something else?
    It might help if you could attach a small example containing typical data. (make current values default before saving and attaching here).

  • Converting a string of numbers into an array of booleans

    For a homework assignment, I need to convert a string of numbers into an array of booleans.  The string is a bunch of random numbers (0-9) in sequence, with no spaces.  It looks something like this: 0123452348949230740329817438120947392147809231419.  I need to make it so that each even number represents a "True" boolean and so that each odd number represents a "False" boolean.  I think that I first need to convert each element of the string into a number, and then use a case structure (or something) to say, for each element of the array, "If even, then true.  If odd, then false," but I could be wrong.  Any suggestions?

    To be fair it sounds like there is more work that is needed.  A new user of LabVIEW will have a hard time figuring out how to process each character one at a time when it isn't in an array.  
    It's just that most people (me at least) stopped thinking about division with quotient and remainder after basic algebra.  I then of course changed my way of thinking when I used LabVIEW.  Still most of the time when you use division you want to know the fractional part as a decimal.  Thinking this way makes the problem more difficult then it needs to be.
