    astring - astore

    is there any way to prevent type changing while using astring() - astore()?
    Code:
    declare a[2]
    a[1] = "a"
    a[2] = 2.0
    ?type("a[2]") 	// N
    x = astring(a,",")
    =astore(aa,x,",")
    ?type("aa[2]") 	// C

    No it treats all items in the comma separated list as character strings.

    Code:
    for I=1 to alen(a)
      if isdigit(a[i])
        a[i] = val(a[i])
      endif
    endfor
    You may want to look at json_encode() / json_decode() and metadata_encode() / metadata_decode() also.
