A couple of I/O questions

1)  How do I turn the string "13" into the fixnum 13?

2)  Is there any way to move the cursor around the screen, so I might
build what amounts to an editor?  (Actually, I'm writing a program to play
the oriental game of Go, and I'd like the user to be able to move the
cursor around the board and select a move, rather than typing in coordinates.)
