[java] Convert string to float?

Just as title says. I don't believe it is possible to do this but if it is let me know.

This is needed for a bukkit (minecraft server) plugin I'm writing. I want to take a command: tnt [power]. Where power is the string returned that I want to convert to float.


This question is related to java

The answer is

Use Float.valueOf(String) to do the conversion.

The difference between valueOf() and parseFloat() is only the return. Use the former if you want a Float (object) and the latter if you want the float number.
