I think the best way to do that is to use a global class with a  
static member variable.  Among other advantages, you dont have to do  
any string to int/float conversion, if you accidentally mistype your  
variable names the compiler will complain, and its a lot more  

For converting ASCII strings to ints or floats, look at the std.atoi 
() and std.atof() functions.
