    #include <stdlib.h>
    long int strtol(const char *str, char **endptr, int base);

strtol Converting a string to an long integer
str: the string to be converted
endptr: address of a pointer variable that points to the last character read, so the character that is not owned by a number
base: base between 2 and 36

Be found unprefixed numbers, these numbers in base 10 are accepted.
If the base '0 'is specified, the strings make a reference to the basis used
(leading “0x” for hexadecimal, “0” for octal, numbers).
