The int type represents a signed 32-bit integer between -2,147,483,648 and 2,147,483,647. The default value is 0.

Literals

An int literal can be a decimal (base 10) or hexadecimal (base 16) number. A decimal integer literal consists of a string of decimal digits (0-9). A hexadecimal literal consists of "0x" or "0X" followed by a string of hexadecimal digits (0-9, a-f, A-F).

Conversion

Explicit

The following functions can be used to convert another data type to an int:

Implicit

There is no implicit conversion to an int.

Persistence

The following functions allow an int to exists outside of the scope of the current script by storing it on an object, effect or event:

Special

In dascript there is no Boolean type. Instead integer values are used to represent Boolean values: 0 represents the false state and anything else represents the true state. For convenience two int constants have been defined in script.ldf to represent the true and false states:

    int FALSE = 0;
    int TRUE = 1;

Care should be taken when evaluating comparisons with TRUE as, for example, the number 2 will evaluate to true but 2 == TRUE would evaluate to false because the literal value of TRUE is not 2.

Examples

void main()
{
    // uninitialised: value = 0
    int nDefault;
 
    // initialised: value = 42
    int nSpecific = 42;
 
    // initialised with hexadecimal literal: value = 42
    int nHexadecimal = 0x002A;
 
    // initialised with boolean constant: value = 1
    int bBoolean = TRUE;
}
