Calling Sequence

short shortValue() throws MapleException

Description

• 

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

• 

To determine if the value fits within a Java short, use the isShort function.

Examples

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;

    short s;

    mapleArgs = new String[1];

    mapleArgs[0] = "java";

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

        null, null );

    n = (Numeric)engine.evaluate( "2^18:" );

    System.out.println( n.isShort() );

    try

    {

        n.shortValue();

    }

    catch ( MapleException me )

    {

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

    }

    n = (Numeric)engine.evaluate( "2^14:" );

    System.out.println( n.isShort() );

    s = n.shortValue();

    System.out.println( s );

    }

}
