[Help?] Integer/Decimal portion of a real number

I'm fairly new with mathematica, and I have a simple question that I
can't figure out.  What I would like to do is break up a real number to
its integer and decimal portion.

 For example:

  4.12345 can be broken up to:

 integer_portion = 4
 decimal_portion = 12345

 Is there a simple function that will provide me with these values?

would appreciate if you would email me.
