Hi Alex,

I would suggest that you don't use atoi, strtol, etc at all. There is 
better way to do conversions:

http://www.parashift.com/c++-faq-lite/misc-technical-issues.html#faq-39.2

They give an example for double, but you can use any other type instead 
(see next example on the same page).

P.S.
C++ Rocks! :)
