Sending a int using VirtualWire

I've got the basic examples reciever and transmitter working sending the default "hello" message.

But I really want to send a int, for example 45 or another value over RF links. Can't understand how to rewrite it to do so!


Anyone care to help me out?


Reciever code:


#include <VirtualWire.h>

#undef int

#undef abs

#undef double

#undef float

#undef round

void setup()


    Serial.begin(9600); // Debugging only
