Umm. I created a routine that solved the requested problem within
parameters. He specifically asked for a routine that would return 0
if a non-number was returned, and didn't specify that a differentiation
between the number 0 and a non-valid response be broken out.

In either case the addition of an else to the if would solve the problem
handily while being simple enough.


Just my thoughts...

I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate.
And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never
expect it.     - Jack Handey
