5. Does SteelArrow work with Java and JavaScript?
6. How do I retrieve the value of the CGI query string?
7. How do I convert a string to a number?
SteelArrow is not a strongly casted language, and as a result variables can change data type as a script executes.  For example, a number can be used as a string, then a list, and then back to a number.

<!--- Create a literal string 121 --->

<!--- Create an integer 232 --->

<!--- 121 + 232 = 353 --->

<!--- 121 & 232 = 121232 --->

The '&' character forces string concatenation of data values.

<SASET NAME=g VALUE="12abc34">

<!--- Outputs 12 --->
<SAOUTPUT VALUE=AsInteger( g )>

The AsInteger function converts as many characters as possible to integer values from within a string.  Once a non-numeric value is encountered, the function returns.

<!--- Returns 0 (zero) --->
<SAOUTPUT VALUE=AsInteger( "abc123" )>

Zero is returned since the first character encountered in not numeric.
