    Question about ParseInt and ParseFloat

    Code:
    parseInt(1e1, 10);
    10
    
    parseInt('1e1', 10);
    1
    
    parseFloat('1e1', 10);
    10
    Shouldn't the second function result in 10 and not 1?

    depends on lel and the radix, if its a number then you only need to do lel=lel-0; to make a string number in to a number number.

    Well my goal isn't to find out how to convert 1e1 to a number. I'm questioning why parseInt seems to choke on scientific notation inside of a string, while parseFloat doesn't. Was this done on purpose?
