(nextIndex, integerNumber) = scanInteger(string, startIndex=1, unsigned=false);
Starts scanning of "string" at position "startIndex". First skips white space and scans afterwards a signed number of type Integer. An Integer starts with an optional '+' or '-', immediately followed by a non-empty sequence of digits.
If successful, the function returns nextIndex = index of character directly after the found Integer number, as well as the Integer value in the second output argument.
If not successful, on return nextIndex = startIndex and the second output argument is zero.
Note, a Real number, such as "123.4", is not treated as an Integer number and scanInteger will return nextIndex = startIndex in this case.
If the optional argument "unsigned" is true, the number shall not start with '+' or '-'. The default of "unsigned" is false.
Default Value: 1
Default Value: false
Description: = true, if number shall not start with '+' or '-'
Description: Index after the found token (success=true) or index at which scanning failed (success=false)
Description: Value of Integer number
