For example, GET_CLASS(ch) returns a char (look in structs.h)  ie: 1
letter.  To the compiler, chars are basically ints.  You can trick the
compiler into thinking that a char is an int by typecasting, ie:


You can do this with any variable type, just put the type you want inside
()'s right before the variable you want to cast.

Not the most detailed explanation, but it's the best I can do without
plagurizing my C book ;)  Hope it helps.
