Returns an integer converted from a string.
The parseInt function returns an integer value equal to the number contained in numString. If no prefix of numString can be successfully parsed into an integer, NaN (not a number) is returned.
parseInt("abc") // Returns NaN. parseInt("12abc") // Returns 12.
You can test for NaN using the isNaN function.
