A floating point literal is distinguished from an integer literal (IntegerLiteral) by the presence of fractional digits or a fractional magnitude.

no subtypes hierarchy

Initializer
FloatLiteral(String text)
Parameters:
  • text

    The text of the literal, including exponent, magnitude, etc.

Attributes
hashshared actual Integer hash

The hash value of the value, which allows the value to be an element of a hash-based set or key of a hash-based map. Implementations must respect the constraint that:

  • if x==y then x.hash==y.hash.

Therefore, a class which refines equals must also refine hash.

Because the Integer type is platform-dependent a compiler for a given platform is permitted to further manipulate the calculated hash for an object, and the resulting hash may differ between platforms.

Refines Object.hash
textshared actual String text

The text of the literal, including exponent, magnitude, etc.

Methods
copyshared FloatLiteral copy(String text = ...)
Parameters:
  • text = this.text
equalsshared actual Boolean equals(Object that)

Float literals are considered equal iff their texts are equal. Two literals with the same float values but different representations (grouping, magnitude, leading and/or trailing zeroes, and/or radix differ) are considered different.

Refines Object.equals
transformshared actual Result transform<out Result>(Transformer<Result> transformer)

Transform this node with the given transformer by calling the appropriate transformX method on the transformer.

If you have a Node node that’s actually an LIdentifier instance, then the runtime will call LIdentifier.transform; therefore, this method is by nature narrowing. This means that if transformer is a NarrowingTransformer, calling node.transform(transformer) is equivalent to calling transformer.transformNode(node). On the other hand, if transformer is a WideningTransformer, then the two operations are very different.

visitshared actual void visit(Visitor visitor)

Visit this node with the given visitor. Calls the appropriate visitX method on the visitor.
