Subject: [mg119605] Is there ToNumber?

Hi,
Is there a built-in function which returns the numeric value of a string

(like ToString but inverse).  Currently I use mine function toNumber:

  ch = StringToStream[timeStr];
  timeNum = Read[ch, Number];
  Close[ch];

but I suspect there is easier way.
Thanks in advance,
--Ted
