String to number


Hi all:

The ToString command generates a string from an expression. Is there a
similar command which generates numbers from strings? What I mean by
this is: is there a command (let's call it ToNumber) such that

ToNumber["12"]

generates the number 12?

Best regards,

Jose Carlos Santos
