How to typecast an integer as a string literal

Path Finder

Is there any way to explicitly typecast a number in Splunk so that it is interpreted as a string literal rather than as a number?

IE, I want '64' to be interpreted as a string rather than as an integer.

Is this possible?

Assuming the number is the value of an extracted field:

... | eval your_field = tostring(your_field)

This and other uses of eval can be found in the search reference:
