An integer is classified as any rational type|number that has no fractional component.


These are all Integers:

  • 5
  • 45213
  • 753
  • -4256
  • -842

These are NOT Integers:

  • 5.3
  • 636.24


Integers are used when you need a number with no decimal place or it doesn’t make sense to have a decimal. Because integers are whole numbers, there are no integers between 1 and 2.

In an IntValue, the lowest value it can hold is -231 or -2,147,483,648. The highest value it can hold is 231-1, or 2,147,483,647. This is a 32-bit (or long) signed integer value.

In Lua, there are no specific integer numbers. The number values are actually double precision floating point (or just double) numbers.
