Numeric.isLong - check if the value stored in the Numeric fits into a Java long

Calling Sequence

boolean isLong() throws MapleException



The isLong function returns true if the value represented by the current Numeric object is an integer small enough to fit into a Java long. Otherwise, the isLong function returns false.


If isLong returns true, a call to longValue completes without error.

class Example


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


    String mapleArgs[];

    Engine engine;

    Numeric n;

    long l;

    mapleArgs = new String[1];

    mapleArgs[0] = "java";

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

        null, null );

    n = (Numeric)engine.evaluate( "2^66:" );

    System.out.println( n.isLong() );





    catch ( MapleException me )


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


    n = (Numeric)engine.evaluate( "2^60:" );

    System.out.println( n.isLong() );

    l = n.longValue();

    System.out.println( l );



Executing this code produces the following output.


Error, value too large for integer[8]
