[ integer ]

Type

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

Integers are usually created as literals. Positive integer literals are simple numbers such as 1, 34, 5018. Negative integer literals are simple numbers preceded by a unary negative symbol: -35, -123.

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 used as storage for bit values using the [Integer->Bit...] methods. See the descriptions of each individual method for more information.

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