Convert float to integer in bash


Hi all,
I have a problem in one of my scripts. In one variable, I get a floating point value. Then I use -le to an Integer value. I get errors on my script as -le is only applicable to integers. How do I convert my floating point value to integer via a bash script? TIA.

perhaps this can be a solution:
Code:
FLOAT=1234.0000
INT=${FLOAT/.*}
# or maybe
INT=${FLOAT/\.*}
