[Ethereum] how to convert string to Address


I want to convert string data to address type.I know that we can directly use address type in the parameters, but for some reason I want to convert it from string to address.

sample code

function check(string _address,string _name,string _password) public returns (string)

    address add=address(_address);
          Users  storage myuser=users[add];

        return "true";
        return "false";


I got JSON-RPC: internal error while executing this function. so I want to check whether it would be resolved if I change the address to a string. If you know how to resolve the JSON-RPC error please help me out.

registerUser: function() { 
    var self = this; 
    var acc=account; 
    var name=document.getElementById("name").value; 
    var password=document.getElementById("password").value; 
    var meta; 
    CoinFlipper.deployed().then(function(instance) { 
        meta = instance; 
        return meta.check.call(acc,name,password).then(function (value) { }, 

I'm using the above function in app.js.

Error: Invalid JSON RPC response: {"id":6,"jsonrpc":"2.0","error":{"code":-32603}} at Object.InvalidResponse (app.js:10374)

One issue with your code is that you are making a call, but your function is not constant and modifies the storage, you need to issue a standard transaction for that reason

CoinFlipper.deployed().then(function(instance) { 
    meta = instance; 
    return meta.check(acc, name, password); /// <--- without `call`
}).then(function (value) {
