That tells me how to convert an int to a hex or oct string using the
hex() and oct() functions, which I already know.   

The int() function will convert a string to an integer.  But it
doesn't understand  hex or oct from a string.,  You can type the hex,
or oct value as an argument for the int() function on the command line
and that works correctly.

So there must be a way to do it?  Am I missing a step?
