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 = { "java" };

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

        Numeric 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() );

        short s = n.shortValue();

        System.out.println( s );

    }

}
