An integer is a whole number (no decimals). If you want decimals, you want a float.

As of Second Life 1.5, integers can be entered in hexadecimal (e.g.

Example:

integer dec = 42; // 42 decimal integer hex = 0xff; // 255 decimal

Octal support was added in 1.5.0 and removed in 1.5.2 because it caused incompatabilities with some existing scripts. The Lindens have not mentioned any plans to bring it back.

To round a float to an integer, use

Beware, a integer variable assigned a value larger/smaller than the valid range is instead assigned a value of -1.

// Watch out! This will compile, but will result in x having the value of -1. integer x = 12345678900000;

How long may an integer be? Can it be 40+/- digits ie. 235215296235221512967235215296235221512967

"* Watch out! This will compile, but will result in x having the value of -1.*

integer x = 12345678900000;" so how can we get around this?

it seems if you have the same number of digits as the max value yet say have one or two points over it converts it to a negative and seems to put a random negative long integer out there...it does NOT return a -1, that only happens when you add an integer with more characters than the max number
