Represents the machine and virtual machine on which the current process is executing.

Holds information about runtime name, version and about inherent limitations like minimum/maximum values that can be represented by the runtime.

Attributes
epsilonshared Float epsilon

The machine epsilon for floating point values. That is, the smallest value e such that:

1.0 + e > 1.0
integerAddressableSizeshared Integer integerAddressableSize

The number of bits of Integer instances which may be manipulated via the methods inherited from Binary.

integerSizeshared Integer integerSize

The number of bits used to represent the value of an Integer.

See also Integer
maxArraySizeshared Integer maxArraySize

The maximum size of an Array that is possible for this runtime. Note that this is a theoretical limit only. In practice it is usually impossible to allocate an array of this size, due to memory constraints.

See also Array
maxExactIntegralFloatshared Integer maxExactIntegralFloat

The largest Integer that can be exactly represented as a Float without loss of precision. The negative of this value is the smallest Integer that can be exactly represented as a Float.

See also Integer.float
maxFloatValueshared Float maxFloatValue

The largest finite Float value that can be represented by the runtime.

maxIntegerValueshared Integer maxIntegerValue

The largest Integer value that can be represented by the runtime.

It is the maximum Integer that can be distinguished from its predecessor using below formula:

Integer(n+1) = Integer(n) + 1 with Integer(0) = 0

See also Integer
minFloatValueshared Float minFloatValue

The smallest positive nonzero Float value that can be represented by the runtime.

minIntegerValueshared Integer minIntegerValue

The smallest Integer value that can be represented by the runtime.

It is the minimum Integer that can be distinguished from its successor using below formula:

Integer(n-1) = Integer(n) - 1 with Integer(0) = 0

See also Integer
nameshared String name

The name of the runtime / virtual machine this process is running on.

stringshared actual String string

A developer-friendly string representing the instance. Concatenates the name of the concrete class of the instance with the hash of the instance. Subclasses are encouraged to refine this implementation to produce a more meaningful representation.

versionshared String version

The version of the runtime / virtual machine this process is running on.
