Comment:
This says "Collect a sequence of characters ... interpret the resulting
sequence as a base-ten integer", whereas the signed and unsigned integers had a
whole five-step loop to do precisely the same thing. They should all use the
simpler phrasing, since it's easier to understand and verify.
