To Integer Stack

 * Package: datastructure
 *
 * Description: Normally modern computers cannot handle very large
 *    numbers. So the task here is to create a datastructure that
 *    can handle numbers of perhaps infinite size. And to prove that
 *    the datastructure works, included are arithmetic operators.
 *
 *    Naturally the numbers are represented as Strings. And to
 *    perform addition and subtraction, stacks are used as the media.
 *    Finally, as any trusty calculator, this datastructure returns
 *    erroneous values for erroneous inputs and correct values for
 *    correct inputs. This is to say, if an input string does not
 *    represent a valid decimal integer, then the output string
 *    will be bogus.

   * Description: This auxiliary function converts a String into a
   *    stack of integers. The function makes no checks for erroneous
   *    values. The user will get what the user asks for.
