At the risk of adding too much salt to the stew, let me, obsessively, add:

You don't mention if the char[] (now a string) is guaranteed to use only upper-case letters, and if the string might contain spaces. And, how about if the string contains numbers, or other white-space, or high-value Unicode characters. What about encoding ? Smile | :)
C#
// requires Linq
private IEnumerable<int> AlphaToInteger(string source)
{
    source = source.ToUpper();
    return source.Where(ch => Char.IsLetter(ch)).Select(chr => chr - 64);
}

// test: set a break-point check the results

// int[] convertedToNumbers = AlphaToInteger("Ho~__wz ab^%$#0944out th,:....at").ToArray();

«I'm asked why doesn't C# implement feature X all the time. The answer's always the same: because no one ever designed, specified, implemented, tested, documented, shipped that feature. All six of those things are necessary to make a feature happen. They all cost huge amounts of time, effort and money.» Eric Lippert, Microsoft, 2009
