How can I convert a currency to a Number in SilkTest?

On occasion returning values from a web page or application may result in a string representation of a number or currency being returned. If these require manipulated in any way (such as adding them for verification of a total) this will not be possible in the current format. The following function and example shows how the formatting can be removed and a number returned.

[-] number CurrencyToNumber (string sString)
    [ ] 
    [ ] string sRemoveCurrency = stuff (sString ,1,1,"")
    [ ] 
    [-] while (StrPos (",", sRemoveCurrency) > 0 )
        [ ] 
        [ ] sRemoveCurrency = stuff (sRemoveCurrency ,StrPos (",", sRemoveCurrency),1,"")
        [ ] 
    [ ] return (val(ltrim(sRemoveCurrency)))
[ ] 
[-] testcase Test1() appstate none
    [ ] 
    [ ] print(CurrencyToNumber ("$ 5,900,111,111.00"))
