How do you cast long to int?
Considering this, what happens when you cast long to int?
When one needs to force a Long into an int there is potential for integer overflow because the numeric value of the Long may have a greater magnitude than the int can accurately represent. If one is told that a given Long will never be larger than what an int can hold, the static method Math.
Also question is, how do you convert long to int in Python?
Number Type Conversion
- Type int(x) to convert x to a plain integer.
- Type long(x) to convert x to a long integer.
- Type float(x) to convert x to a floating-point number.
- Type complex(x) to convert x to a complex number with real part x and imaginary part zero.
2 Answers. Yes, that's fine. The int will be implicitly converted to a long , which can always be done without any loss of information. You can compare long and int directly however this is not recommended.
