Thank you for the corrections. Here is my revised proposal:
int([number | string[, radix])
Convert a number or string to an integer. If no arguments are given,
return 0. If a number is given, return number.__int__(). Conversion of
floating point numbers to integers truncates towards zero. A string must
be a base-radix integer literal optionally preceded by '+' or '-' (with no
space in between) and optionally surrounded by whitespace. A base-n
literal consists of the digits 0 to n-1, with 'a' to 'z' (or 'A' to 'Z')
having values 10 to 35. The default radix is 10. The allowed values are 0
and 2-36. Base-2, -8, and -16 literals can be optionally prefixed with
0b/0B, 0o/0O, or 0x/0X, as with integer literals in code. Radix 0 means to
interpret exactly as a code literal, so that the actual radix is 2, 8, 10,
or 16, and so that int('010',0) is not legal, while int('010') is.
