strint <-> intsr help

I'm having trouble with converting the numbers from integers to string even though I'm doing it the way the reference said it should be done.

 code: var num : int var fnum : string get num for i : 1 .. num - 1     num := num * i end for intstr (num) := fnum put fnum

I don't understand where exactly my error is or what I'm doing wrong. Can someone please help me out? btw my program is just a figuring out the factorial powers of whole numbers from 1..user input in case anybody was wondering. [/code]

 code: intstr (num) := fnum

with that line you are trying to assign assign a string to a string that holds a number (whatever number num ends up being at the time).

intstr converts an integer to a string
strint converts a string to an integer (you might want to use the strintok function first)

what i think you want is
 code: num := strint (fnum)

of course that doesn't make any sense, especially considering fnum isn't defined. so maybe what i think you meant was
 code: fnum := intstr (num)

I still heard that I should ask dan to write up some code just to stop Mazer from recieving any bits

would it even matter?

Mazer will probably come up with Evasive Manuever II, and we'll all end up refilling ammo for his bit-gun anyways
