[types] integer
on: August 10, 2020, 12:17:46 AM

JASS integer values take 32 bits.


Decimal.- Any number, negative , positive or 0 that does not have a fractionary part: ex: 12 , -199930 , 999999

Octal.- If a number starts with 0 it is considered an octal value, ex: 07 == 7 , 08 causes a syntax error, 012 equals to 10.

Hexadecimal.- If a number starts with 0x it is considered a hex value, ex: 0x2==2, 0xA == 10 , 0x10 == 16 , 0xFF == 255 .

Character.- An asc ii character between '' represents its correspondant number from 0 to 255, ex: 'A'==65 , '<'==60 . Note that certains bytes inside the script file will cause major errors.

4 Characters.- A representation in ASCII of the 4 bytes used by the integer, this representation is mostly used for Unit/ability/tile /upgrade/etc/ ids. Example: 'Aloc' , 'B000'

Lua is also compiled with 32-bit integers (game's exe is 64-bit)

Octal: Jass2Lua transpiler does not support integers defined in octal representation and crashes. (Reforged, v1.32.10)

Character: 'hfoo' represents a human footman object code in Jass. These are also called "raw codes" or FourCC. In Jass, these are automatically read as integers by the Jass interpreter.
If you use Lua, you must manually convert a string of four characters to integer with FourCC("hfoo"). This is true for ability IDs, unit/destructable types etc. in any place where the game's API needs an integer to refer to the type of an object.
