    If you would like to cast a float (hours) to an int (iHours), you would write: iHours=(int)hours; but beware that the fractional part of hours will be truncated, i.e. no proper rounding. Other castings can be done similarly. Note that inversely an integer can be "promoted" to a float automatically without casting.
