Is it possible to cast a
to a long? I first looked for String methods that would allow me to do this, and then I tried doing this:
long foo = (long) blah;
That gives me an 'inconvertible types' error.

Check out the parseLong() method in the Long class. It takes a String arguemnt and returns a long (primitive).
I agree. Here's the link:
