Integer

Last updated at 4:50 pm UTC on 16 January 2006

I am a common abstract superclass for all Integer implementations. My implementation subclasses are SmallInteger, LargePositiveInteger, and LargeNegativeInteger.

See my Integer superclass for general numeric methods

Integer division consists of:

/ exact division, answers a fraction if result is not a whole integer

// answers an Integer, rounded towards negative infinity

\\ is modulo rounded towards negative infinity

quo: truncated division, rounded towards zero
