Extracting INT value from a STRING

I'm trying to figure out how to extract an int value from the command line. It came up in my head as something you'd think to be fundamental, but I can't figure it out!?!
I've tried parseInt(args[0]); valueOf(args[0]); but maybe I've got the syntax wrong. (not too familiar with those methods.. probably using them wrong!) Anyone have any tips? Thanks!

pareInt is a static method of Integer, so just use this:

That should do the trick. Of course, you'll probably want to catch a NumberFormatException (which is a runtime exception) in the case that the first argument isn't a valid int.

Thanks!
