Helpers for processor-native integers

This module provides operations on the type nativeint of signed 32-bit integers (on 32-bit platforms) or signed 64-bit integers (on 64-bit platforms). This integer type has exactly the same width as that of a pointer type in the C compiler. All arithmetic operations over nativeint are taken modulo 232 or 264 depending on the word size of the architecture.

Performance notice: values of type nativeint occupy more memory space than values of type int, and arithmetic operations on nativeint are generally slower than those on int. Use nativeint only when the application requires the extra bit of precision over the int type.

val (-) : t -> t -> t


val (~-) : t -> t

Unary negation.

val (*) : t -> t -> t


val (/) : t -> t -> t

Integer division. Raise Division_by_zero if the second argument is zero. This division rounds the real quotient of its arguments towards zero, as specified for Pervasives.(/).

val (mod) : t -> t -> t

x mod y is the integer remainder. If y <> zero, the result of x mod y satisfies the following properties: zero <= x mod y < abs y and x = ((x / y) * y) + (x mod y). If y = 0, x mod y raises Division_by_zero.

val (land) : t -> t -> t

Bitwise logical and.

val (lor) : t -> t -> t

Bitwise logical or.

val (lxor) : t -> t -> t

Bitwise logical exclusive or.

val lnot : t -> t

Bitwise logical negation.

val (lsl) : t -> int -> t

x lsl y shifts x to the left by y bits. The result is unspecified if y < 0 or y >= bitsize, where bitsize is 32 on a 32-bit platform and 64 on a 64-bit platform.

val (lsr) : t -> int -> t

x lsr y shifts x to the right by y bits. This is a logical shift: zeroes are inserted in the vacated bits regardless of the sign of x. The result is unspecified if y < 0 or y >= bitsize.

val (asr) : t -> int -> t

x asr y shifts x to the right by y bits. This is an arithmetic shift: the sign bit of x is replicated and inserted in the vacated bits. The result is unspecified if y < 0 or y >= bitsize.

module Infix : sig ... end
val equal : t -> t -> bool

The equal function for native integers. Like Pervasives.(=)xy).

val hash : t -> int

Like Pervasives.abs(to_intx).


val to_int : t -> int

Convert the given native integer (type nativeint) to an integer (type int). The high-order bit is lost during the conversion.

val of_int : int -> t

Alias to Nativeint.of_int. Convert the given integer (type int) to a native integer (type nativeint).

val to_float : t -> float

Convert the given native integer to a floating-point number.

val of_float : float -> t

Alias to Nativeint.of_float. Convert the given floating-point number to a native integer, discarding the fractional part (truncate towards 0). The result of the conversion is undefined if, after truncation, the number is outside the range [CCNativeint.min_int, CCNativeint.max_int].

val to_string : t -> string

Return the string representation of its argument, in decimal.

val of_string_exn : string -> t

Alias to Nativeint.of_string. Convert the given string to a native integer. The string is read in decimal (by default, or if the string begins with 0u) or in hexadecimal, octal or binary if the string begins with 0x, 0o or 0b respectively.

The 0u prefix reads the input as an unsigned integer in the range [0, 2*CCNativeint.max_int+1]. If the input exceeds CCNativeint.max_int it is converted to the signed integer CCInt64.min_int + input - CCNativeint.max_int - 1.

Raise Failure "Nativeint.of_string" if the given string is not a valid representation of an integer, or if the integer represented exceeds the range of integers representable in type nativeint.

val of_string : string -> t option

Safe version of of_string_exn. Like of_string_exn, but return None instead of raising.

val of_string_opt : string -> t option

Alias to of_string.
