How to convert a float to an int

Paul Hudson       @twostraws

You can convert between a Float and an Int just by using the integer's constructor, like this:

let myFloat: Float = 10.756
let myInt = Int(myFloat)

Note that when you do this, your number will automatically be rounded downwards. In the example above, the integer will be 10, not 11.
