Numeric.byteValue - return the value of the Numeric object as a Java byte

Calling Sequence

byte byteValue() throws MapleException



The byteValue function returns the value represented in the Numeric as a Java byte.  If the value does not fit exactly into a Java byte, an error is raised.


To determine if the value fits within a Java byte, use the isByte function.


import com.maplesoft.openmaple.*;

import com.maplesoft.externalcall.MapleException;

class Example


    public static void main( String notused[] ) throws MapleException


    String mapleArgs[];

    Engine engine;

    Numeric n;

    byte b;

    mapleArgs = new String[1];

    mapleArgs[0] = "java";

    engine = new Engine( mapleArgs, new EngineCallBacksDefault(),

        null, null );

    n = (Numeric)engine.evaluate( "200:" );

    System.out.println( n.isByte() );





    catch ( MapleException me )


        System.out.println( me.getMessage() );


    n = (Numeric)engine.evaluate( "100:" );

    System.out.println( n.isByte() );

    b = n.byteValue();

    System.out.println( b );



Executing this code produces the following output.


Error, value too large for integer[1]
