Thank you all for your helping replies. But what is the purpose of function "int" when there is a better function "Integer"? Then the code of "int" should be rewritten according to the code of "Integer".

I had to manipulate extremely large integer numbers read from a file as strings (2^7000000 is tiny compared to those numbers). Then I need to convert them into numbers to be able to do some computations with them. With "int" it was impossible.
