Parse string to float or double

Parse string to float or double

Question:
Is there a command Float.parseNumbers(s) that returns a float?

Answer:
Sure, parseInt(s) is simply:

 Integer temp = Integer.valueOf(s);   int x = temp.intValue();
which has an equivalent for floats
Float temp = Float.valueOf(s);   float x = temp.floatValue();
which can be written as a single line
float x = Float.valueOf(s).floatValue();
