Re: question about mixing numbers and strings without using d2s() or parseFloat() first
You may probably as well get a way sharper answer either from Michael (Schmid) or Wayne, but what you are describing is something that I'm used to see (and use).
You can even push it further and do this in java with the IJ.log method where you can write:
IJ.log("" + val);
val being an int without having to use any Integer.toString(val) or String.valueOf(val) method for the conversion.
Nevertheless for a string to int or flat conversion in macro language I still prefer to use the parseInt(string) or parseFloat(string) methods is order to be sure to not make any mistakes.
Have a nice end of week-end and take care!
