LOLCODE allows converting a variable to a different types, such as from a NUMBAR (float) to a NUMBR (integer), using the IS NOW A command.

It goes on a line between a variable’s name and a new type for the variable:

[variable] IS NOW A [type]

Casting a NUMBAR to a NUMBR truncates the decimal portion of the floating point number.

For example, in the code below:

I HAS A powerLevel ITZ 9000.1 powerLevel IS NOW A NUMBR

powerLevel is changed to contain 9000.



Create a variable named rating and assign it a NUMBAR (float) value.

Convert it to NUMBR (integer) and print it with VISIBLE.
