to_int - convert a float or buffer to an int
int to_int( float | buffer x );
If 'x' is a float, the to_int() call returns the number of type 'int' that is equivalent to 'x' (with any decimal stripped off). If 'x' is a buffer, the call returns the integer (in network-byte-order) that is embedded in the buffer.
