Whole number (primitive)
An integer is a whole number (eg 1, 2, 3, 4) rather than one with a decimal point (such as 1.1).
Integers in murex are sized based on the bit (or word) size of the target CPU.
A 386, ARMv6 or other 32bit build of murex would see the range of from
-2147483648 (negative) through
AMD64 or other 64bit built of murex would see the range from
-9223372036854775808 (negative) through
Unless you specifically know you only want whole numbers, it is recommended that you use the default numeric data-type:
Marshal()(type): Converts structured memory into a structured file format (eg for stdio)
Unmarshal()(type): Converts a structured file format into structured memory
[[(element): Outputs an element from a nested structure
[(index): Outputs an element from an array, map or table
cast: Alters the data type of the previous function without altering it's output
format: Reformat one data-type into another data-type
num(number): Floating point number (primitive)
open: Open a file with a preferred handler
runtime: Returns runtime information on the internal state of murex
str(string): string (primitive)
