The integer data type represents positive or negative whole numbers. Integers are stored as 64-bit signed values.

Integers are usually created as literals. Positive integer literals are simply number such as 1, 34, or 5018. Negative integer literals must be surrounded by parentheses such as (-1), (-35), or (-1000000).

Integers can be manipulated using a number of mathematical symbols. For example, (1 + 1), (5 - 3), (2 * 3), (10 / 5), or (9 % 10). An expression with an integer on either side of the mathematical symbol will always return an integer value. In particular, (10 % 3) will return the integer 3 rather than the decimal 3.333333.

Integers can be formatted using the [Integer->SetFormat] tag. Integers can be used as storage for bit values using the [Integer->Bit...] member tags. See the descriptions of each individual member tag for more information.

Strings or decimals can be cast to integers using the [Integer] tag. For example, [Integer: '3'] returns the integer 3 and [Integer: 7.333333] returns the integer 7.
