Define a primitive data type

From Rosetta Code
Task
Define a primitive data type
You are encouraged to solve this task according to the task description, using any language you may know.

Demonstrate how to define a type that behaves like an integer but has a lowest valid value of 1 and a highest valid value of 10. Include all bounds checking you need to write, or explain how the compiler or interpreter creates those bounds checks for you.

Ada[edit]

type My_Type is range 1..10;

The compiler identifies the range of valid values from the range specification 1..10 and automatically builds in bounds checking where it is needed. The compiler is smart enough to omit bounds checking when it is not needed.

A : My_Type := 3;
B : My_Type := A;

The compiler will omit bounds checking for the assignment of A to B above because both values are of My_Type. A cannot hold a value outside the range of 1..10, therefore the assignment cannot produce an out of bounds result.

ALGOL 68[edit]

Built in or standard distribution routines[edit]

Bounded data types are not part of standard ALGOL 68, but can be implemented.

Other libraries or implementation specific extensions[edit]

As of February 2009 no open source libraries to do this task have been located.

C#[edit]

Strictly speaking, this task is impossible in C# because a type that behaves like an integer (int, or System.Int32; Integer in VB.NET) must be a struct (in order to have value-type semantics), and, since C# does not allow the definition of a parameterless constructor for a struct (instead generating a default parameterless constructor that sets each of its fields to the default value for the type of the field), an instance of the struct with the forbidden value of zero can be created through that default constructor.

A way to overcome this in the type's public interface, however, is to expose the field exclusively as a property that checks whether its backing field is out of range, and, if so, returns a valid default value.

Through operator overloading, it is possible to declare types in C# with the full complement of operators available on the primitive types. The following structure attempts to mimic the behavior of the int type in C# on .NET Core as much as possible, including interfaces and static members, delegating as much implementation as possible to the Integer type itself.

This class relies on implicit conversions to do most int operations; however the combined operations with assignment have to be coded explicitly.

Clojure[edit]

Use proxy on java.lang.Number so it can be used in Clojure's math operations.

(defn tinyint [^long value]
(if (<= 1 value 10)
(proxy [Number] []
(doubleValue [] value)
(longValue [] value))
(throw (ArithmeticException. "integer overflow"))))
Output:
user=> (+ (tinyint 1) (tinyint 9))
10
user=> (* 4 (tinyint 6))
24
user=> (* 4 (tinyint 6.0))
24
user=> (/ (tinyint 3) (tinyint 5))
3/5
user=> (tinyint 11)
ArithmeticException integer overflow 
user=> (.doubleValue (tinyint 9.4))
9.0

Common Lisp[edit]

The built-in integer type specifier provides range parameters. deftype may be used to define an alias for it.

(deftype one-to-ten ()
'(integer 1 10))

For a bounds check, one may use typep (a predicate) or check-type (signals an error if not of the type).

(defun word (i)
(check-type i one-to-ten)
(case i
(1 "one")
(2 "two")
(3 "three")
(4 "four")
(5 "five")
(6 "six")
(7 "seven")
(8 "eight")
(9 "nine")
(10 "ten")))

(Note that the above can be written without the separate check-type by using ecase instead of case, which signals an error when no case matches.)

To inform the compiler that a variable will be of a certain type, permitting optimizations, use a declaration:

(dolist (i numbers)
(declare (type one-to-ten i))
...)

Note, however, that the standard does not specify what happens in the event that a declaration is false (though SBCL, for example, does perform type checks on any declaration except when safety is 0); use check-type for portable bounds checks.

Euphoria[edit]

In Euphoria types are special functions that may be used in declaring the allowed values for a variable. A type must have exactly one parameter and should return an atom that is either true (non-zero) or false (zero). Types can also be called just like other functions. The types object, sequence, atom and integer are predefined.

type My_Type(integer i)
return i >= 1 and i <= 10
end type

Factor[edit]

We can accomplish this using a predicate class. A predicate class must be a subclass of an existing class and allows the programmer to write a predicate which determines membership.

PREDICATE: my-int < integer [ 0 > ] [ 11 < ] bi and ;

This automatically creates the my-int? predicate word which determines whether an object is a my-int.

11 my-int? ! f
10 my-int? ! t
"hello" my-int? ! f

We can now write methods that specialize on my-int. We will define an increment word, ++, which increments integers by 1 but divides my-ints by 2.

GENERIC: ++ ( m -- n )
M: integer ++ 1 + ;
M: my-int ++ 2/ ;
 
10 ++ ! 5
11 ++ ! 12

Forth[edit]

Works with: ANS/ISO Forth

Forth can be thought of as a clever Assembler for the Forth two stack virtual machine. As such Standard Forth does not type data but it does implicitly "type" words that act on data in that each function normally operates on a prescribed data type. True to the low level nature of Forth, the responsibility to select the correct action word for specific data is given to the programmer. That being said there are some simple ways to add the requested mechanism to your Forth system.

It is worth noting that Forth's penchant for simplicity means we do not need to write new math operators since each operator is atomic and takes arguments from the stack and returns the result to the stack. Therefore we get the desired functionality by only changing the assignment operation. Simplicity has its advantages.

Method 1: Safe Integer Store operators[edit]

Forth is a fetch and store based virtual machine. If we create a safe version of store (!) the programmer simply uses this operator rather than the standard store operator.

DECIMAL
: CLIP ( n lo hi -- n') ROT MIN MAX ;
: BETWEEN ( n lo hi -- flag) 1+ WITHIN ;
 
\ programmer chooses CLIPPED or SAFE integer assignment
: CLIP! ( n addr -- ) SWAP 1 10 CLIP SWAP  ! ;
: SAFE! ( n addr -- )
OVER 1 10 BETWEEN 0= ABORT" out of range!"
 ! ;

Testing

VARIABLE X
7 X SAFE! X ? 7 ok
12 X CLIP! X ? 10 ok
 
99 X SAFE!
:64: out of range!
99 X >>>SAFE!<<<
Backtrace:
$7FAA2B0C throw
$7FAD4698 c(abort")
 

Method 2: redefine standard "store" operator as DEFER word[edit]

Using the code in Method 1, we can re-define the store (!) operator to be switchable.

DECIMAL
: FAST! ( n addr -- )  ! ; ( alias the standard version)
 
DEFER !
 
\ commands to change the action of '!'
: LIMITS-ON ( -- ) ['] SAFE! IS ! ;
: LIMITS-OFF ( -- ) ['] FAST! IS ! ;
: CLIPPING-ON ( -- ) ['] CLIP! IS ! ;

Testing

VARIABLE Y 
 
LIMITS-OFF ok
1 Y ! Y ? 1 ok
10 Y ! Y ? 10 ok
11 Y ! Y ? 11 ok
0 Y ! Y ? 0 ok
LIMITS-ON ok

0 Y ! Y ?
:26: out of range!
0 Y >>>!<<< Y ?
Backtrace:
$7FAA2B0C throw
$7FAD4460 c(abort")
 

Method 3: Create a safe VALUE assignment operator[edit]

A VALUE defines a numerical data type that returns it's value rather than an address (pointer) like a variable. We can create a word that assigns a number to a VALUE but tests for out of range errors.

: (->) ( n <text> -- )
OVER 1 10 BETWEEN 0= ABORT" out of range!"
>BODY ! ;
 
: -> ( n -- )
STATE @
IF POSTPONE ['] POSTPONE (->) \ compiling action
ELSE ' (->) \ interpret action
THEN ; IMMEDIATE

Test

0 VALUE Z  ok
99 TO Z ok ( normal assignment)
Z . 99 ok
99 -> Z ( safe assignment)
:43: out of range!
99 -> >>>Z<<<
Backtrace:
$7FAA2B0C throw

$7FAD45DC (->)

Free Pascal[edit]

See Pascal

type
range = 1..10;
var
n: range;
begin
n := 10;
{$rangeChecks on}
n := n + 10; // will yield a run-time error
end;

The FPC (Free Pascal compiler) by default does not generate range checks. Assigning a value out of range is possible. Only constant expressions, i. e. expressions that can be evaluated entirely during compile-time, are not accepted, if they are out of range.

The compiler directive {$rangeChecks on} will enable insertion of range checks. If an out of range assignment is attempted, a run-time error occurs.

Note, in {$mode Delphi} range checks are only switchable at procedural level, not on a per expression-basis.

Go[edit]

Translation of: Kotlin


Creating a type that behaves like an integer but yet is distinct from it can be done in Go subject to the following constraints:

1. An instance of the new type needs to be created via a factory function (Go doesn't have constructors or user defined literals) to ensure it lies between 1 and 10. If an attempt is made to create an instance outside these limits, the value is adjusted so that it is just within them.

2. Go doesn't support operator overloading and so methods need to be defined for the standard operations on integers. As in the case of the Kotlin entry, only the basic arithmetic operations and the increment and decrement operations have been catered for below.

package main
 
import "fmt"
 
type TinyInt int
 
func NewTinyInt(i int) TinyInt {
if i < 1 {
i = 1
} else if i > 10 {
i = 10
}
return TinyInt(i)
}
 
func (t1 TinyInt) Add(t2 TinyInt) TinyInt {
return NewTinyInt(int(t1) + int(t2))
}
 
func (t1 TinyInt) Sub(t2 TinyInt) TinyInt {
return NewTinyInt(int(t1) - int(t2))
}
 
func (t1 TinyInt) Mul(t2 TinyInt) TinyInt {
return NewTinyInt(int(t1) * int(t2))
}
 
func (t1 TinyInt) Div(t2 TinyInt) TinyInt {
return NewTinyInt(int(t1) / int(t2))
}
 
func (t1 TinyInt) Rem(t2 TinyInt) TinyInt {
return NewTinyInt(int(t1) % int(t2))
}
 
func (t TinyInt) Inc() TinyInt {
return t.Add(TinyInt(1))
}
 
func (t TinyInt) Dec() TinyInt {
return t.Sub(TinyInt(1))
}
 
func main() {
t1 := NewTinyInt(6)
t2 := NewTinyInt(3)
fmt.Println("t1 =", t1)
fmt.Println("t2 =", t2)
fmt.Println("t1 + t2 =", t1.Add(t2))
fmt.Println("t1 - t2 =", t1.Sub(t2))
fmt.Println("t1 * t2 =", t1.Mul(t2))
fmt.Println("t1 / t2 =", t1.Div(t2))
fmt.Println("t1 % t2 =", t1.Rem(t2))
fmt.Println("t1 + 1 =", t1.Inc())
fmt.Println("t1 - 1 =", t1.Dec())
}
Output:
t1      = 6
t2      = 3
t1 + t2 = 9
t1 - t2 = 3
t1 * t2 = 10
t1 / t2 = 2
t1 % t2 = 1
t1 + 1  = 7
t1 - 1  = 5

Haskell[edit]

Haskell doesn't have any built-in subrange types. However, it is possible to declare arbitrary types that "behave like" any of the built-in types on the "usual" numeric etc. operations, because these operations are defined by type-classes. So we generalize the task a bit, and first declare a generic container type that supports an additional check operation. Then, we lift any operation in the base type to the container type, by executing the check after each operation:

{-# OPTIONS -fglasgow-exts #-}
 
data Check a b = Check { unCheck :: b } deriving (Eq, Ord)
 
class Checked a b where
check :: b -> Check a b
 
lift f x = f (unCheck x)
liftc f x = check $ f (unCheck x)
 
lift2 f x y = f (unCheck x) (unCheck y)
lift2c f x y = check $ f (unCheck x) (unCheck y)
lift2p f x y = (check u, check v) where (u,v) = f (unCheck x) (unCheck y)
 
instance Show b => Show (Check a b) where
show (Check x) = show x
showsPrec p (Check x) = showsPrec p x
 
instance (Enum b, Checked a b) => Enum (Check a b) where
succ = liftc succ
pred = liftc pred
toEnum = check . toEnum
fromEnum = lift fromEnum
 
instance (Num b, Checked a b) => Num (Check a b) where
(+) = lift2c (+)
(-) = lift2c (-)
(*) = lift2c (*)
negate = liftc negate
abs = liftc abs
signum = liftc signum
fromInteger = check . fromInteger
 
instance (Real b, Checked a b) => Real (Check a b) where
toRational = lift toRational
 
instance (Integral b, Checked a b) => Integral (Check a b) where
quot = lift2c quot
rem = lift2c rem
div = lift2c div
mod = lift2c mod
quotRem = lift2p quotRem
divMod = lift2p divMod
toInteger = lift toInteger

Now we can declare the a subrange 1..10 of integer like this:

newtype TinyInt = TinyInt Int
 
instance Checked TinyInt Int where
check x | x >= 0 && x <= 10 = Check x
| otherwise = error "Out of range"

In the same way, we could now declare the subtype of the even integers:

newtype EvenInt = EvenInt Int
 
instance Checked EvenInt Int where
check x | even x = Check x
| otherwise = error "Not even"

Similarly, we could declare the subtype of floating point numbers with restricted exponent, and so on.

Java[edit]

The closest you can get to defining a primitive type in Java is making a new wrapper class with methods for math operations.

This example class throws an exception if the value is out of the bounds; it is implemented only in the assignment method "assign" and the addition method "add". The class can be easily extended.

class BoundedIntOutOfBoundsException extends Exception
{
public BoundedIntOutOfBoundsException(int v, int l, int u) {
super("value " + v + " is out of bounds [" + l + "," + u + "]");
}
}
 
class BoundedInt {
private int value;
private int lower;
private int upper;
 
public BoundedInt(int l, int u) {
lower = Math.min(l, u);
upper = Math.max(l, u);
}
 
private boolean checkBounds(int v) {
return (v >= this.lower) && (v <= this.upper);
}
 
public void assign(BoundedInt i) throws BoundedIntOutOfBoundsException {{
assign(i.value()); //could still throw Exception if the other BoundedInt has different bounds
}
 
public void assign(int v) throws BoundedIntOutOfBoundsException {
if ( checkBounds(v) ) {
this.value = v;
} else {
throw new BoundedIntOutOfBoundsException(v, this.lower, this.upper);
}
}
 
public int add(BoundedInt i) throws BoundedIntOutOfBoundsException {
return add(i.value());
}
 
public int add(int i) throws BoundedIntOutOfBoundsException {
if ( checkBounds(this.value + i) ) {
this.value += i;
} else {
throw new BoundedIntOutOfBoundsException(this.value + i, this.lower, this.upper);
}
return this.value;
}
 
public int value() {
return this.value;
}
}
 
 
public class Bounded {
public static void main(String[] args) throws BoundedIntOutOfBoundsException {
BoundedInt a = new BoundedInt(1, 10);
BoundedInt b = new BoundedInt(1, 10);
 
a.assign(6);
try {
b.assign(12);
} catch (Exception e) {
System.out.println(e.getMessage());
}
b.assign(9);
try {
a.add(b.value());
} catch (Exception e) {
System.out.println(e.getMessage());
}
}
}

jq[edit]

In the following, we define a new type named "smallint", with arithmetic operations that either return the "smallint" one would expect from ordinary arithmetic, or else return nothing (an empty stream), as opposed to returning null or raising an error. The choice of an empty stream is made to highlight this alternative.

By design, jq's types are constrained to be JSON types, so jq's type system cannot be used to create a new type, but we can create a parallel type system based on JSON objects. We shall do so using the convention that if an object has a key named "type", then the type of the object will be the given value:
def typeof:
if type == "object" and has("type") then .type else type end;
We also define a generic "pretty-print" filter:
def pp:
if type == "object" and has("type") then "\(.type)::\(.value)"
else .
end;
Our instances of smallint will look like this: {"type": "smallint", "value": 0}

This definition ensures that jq's basic tests for equality and inequality (== and !=) can be used for the instances of smallint.

In fact the builtin comparison functions (< and >) will also have the correct semantics, as will sort and unique.

As of this writing, the official release of jq does not support modules, so we will not use jq's new module system here, but it would allow us to place all the smallint functions in a Smallint module.

To generate instances of smallint, we define a function, smallint(i), that will return an instance corresponding to an integer, i, if it is in range. As noted above, it will otherwise return nothing at all (as opposed to null or raising an error):
def smallint(i): i as $i
| if (i|type) == "number" and i == (i|floor) and i > 0 and i < 11 then {"type": "smallint", "value": i}
else empty
end ;
 
# A convenience function to save typing:
def s(i): smallint(i);
 
# To convert from the pretty-print representation back to smallint:
def tosmallint:
if type == "string" and startswith("smallint::") then
split("::") | smallint( .[1] | tonumber )
else empty
end ;
That leaves just basic arithmetic operations: add minus times mod div
def add(a;b): smallint(a.value + b.value);
def minus(a;b): smallint(a.value - b.value);
def times(a;b): smallint(a.value * b.value);
def mod(a;b): smallint(a.value % b.value);
def divide(a;b): smallint( (a.value / b.value) | floor );
Examples:
s(1) < s(3)            # => true
add( s(1); s(2)) | pp # "smallint::3"
add( s(6); s(6)) # (nothing)

Julia[edit]

Julia has true, machine-optimized user defined primitives, but they are defined as contiguous groups of N bits:

struct LittleInt <: Integer
val::Int8
function LittleInt(n::Real)
1 ≤ n ≤ 10 || throw(ArgumentError("LittleInt number must be in [1, 10]"))
return new(Int8(n))
end
end
Base.show(io::IO, x::LittleInt) = print(io, x.val)
Base.convert(::Type{T}, x::LittleInt) where T<:Number = convert(T, x.val)
Base.promote_rule(::Type{LittleInt}, ::Type{T}) where T<:Number = T
 
for op in (:+, :*, :÷, :-, :&, :|, :$, :<, :>, :(==))
@eval (Base.$op)(a::LittleInt, b::LittleInt) = LittleInt(($op)(a.val, b.val))
end
 
# Test
a = LittleInt(3)
b = LittleInt(4.0)
@show a b
@show a + b
@show b - a
@show a * LittleInt(2)
@show b ÷ LittleInt(2)
@show a * b
Output:
a = 3
b = 4
a + b = 7
b - a = 1
a * LittleInt(2) = 6
b ÷ LittleInt(2) = 2
ERROR: LoadError: ArgumentError: LittleInt number must be in [1, 10]

Kotlin[edit]

There are limits to what can be done to create a 'work-alike' primitive type in Kotlin as the language doesn't support either user-defined literals or implicit conversions between types.

However, subject to that, the following code creates a new primitive type called TinyInt whose values lie between 1 and 10 inclusive. Instead of throwing an exception, attempting to create such a type with an out of bounds value results in a value which is within bounds i.e. 1 if the value is less than 1 or 10 if the value is greater than 10.

Rather than attempt to reproduce all functions or operators which the Int type supports, only the basic arithmetic operators and the increment and decrement operators are catered for below:

// version 1.1
 
class TinyInt(i: Int) {
private val value = makeTiny(i)
 
operator fun plus (other: TinyInt): TinyInt = TinyInt(this.value + other.value)
operator fun minus(other: TinyInt): TinyInt = TinyInt(this.value - other.value)
operator fun times(other: TinyInt): TinyInt = TinyInt(this.value * other.value)
operator fun div (other: TinyInt): TinyInt = TinyInt(this.value / other.value)
operator fun rem (other: TinyInt): TinyInt = TinyInt(this.value % other.value)
 
operator fun inc() = TinyInt(this.value + 1)
operator fun dec() = TinyInt(this.value - 1)
 
private fun makeTiny(i: Int): Int =
when {
i < 1 -> 1
i > 10 -> 10
else -> i
}
 
override fun toString(): String = value.toString()
}
 
fun main(args: Array<String>) {
var t1 = TinyInt(6)
var t2 = TinyInt(3)
println("t1 = $t1")
println("t2 = $t2")
println("t1 + t2 = ${t1 + t2}")
println("t1 - t2 = ${t1 - t2}")
println("t1 * t2 = ${t1 * t2}")
println("t1 / t2 = ${t1 / t2}")
println("t1 % t2 = ${t1 % t2}")
println("t1 + 1 = ${++t1}")
println("t2 - 1 = ${--t2}")
}
Output:
t1      = 6
t2      = 3
t1 + t2 = 9
t1 - t2 = 3
t1 * t2 = 10
t1 / t2 = 2
t1 % t2 = 1
t1 + 1  = 7
t2 - 1  = 2

M2000 Interpreter[edit]

We can make a Group to get and return value, a numeric value (if no $ used in name). Here we make operators ++ -- += and -=. To use it as a group in right expression we have to use Group(). Also we need Group() to push as group, at the last statement of CheckThis, where M is a pointer to a named group (K), which is not a movable Group (when module end run, this group erased), so cannot returned from module (if we do that we get a broken reference, which refer to a non exist group).

Class typeA, always return a unnamed group (a movable one) as a copy of an internal group (referred as This in constructor). Here constructor used once and because is in Class: part, can't copied to movable copy. Private variable mval can be visible only from "this" object. Statement .mval++ is same as This.mval++. Properties min and max has only value part, are read only. Min and max are groups also, and we can add anything that a group can have, using a second definition as Group min { }. Also a Property Min make a private variable as [min] so This.[Min] or .[Min] can be read or write inside modules/functions/operators of typeA and those who we insert after. Look at Set {} we place value to .mval using <=. If we use = then we make a local variable in Set not the private variable of group.

Every Module/Function/Operator/Sub/Thread can use stack of values. Rules are simple. Functions/Operators use new stack of values each time we call them in expressions. Module and Function which call using Call, or modules and subs by name use parent stack. Events (call functions) use new stack for each call.

We use stack to push a group (a copy form a pointer M, which points to K), as return value from module.

We can use Currency, Decimal, Double, Single, Long, Integer for primitive data types. When we see type using Type$() we get "Group" (the user object type) but using TypeExp$() (defined in this example) we get group value's type, as Currency here.

MATLAB[edit]

In a weird way MATLAB has no primitive data types. All data types are defined as a MATLAB class somewhere in the MATLAB install directory. Therefore, to define a primitive data type, you define a class. Below is a class called "RingInt" that has the properties of an integer data type, but the values are restricted in the range [1,10]. Include in the definition are functions that overload some of the built-in MATLAB operators, e.g. addition and subtraction.

In a folder named "@RingInt" RingInt.m:

classdef RingInt
 
properties
value
end
 
methods
 
%RingInt constructor
function theInt = RingInt(varargin)
if numel(varargin) == 0
theInt.value = 1;
elseif numel(varargin) > 1
error 'The RingInt constructor can''''t take more than 1 argument.';
else
 
%Makes sure any doubles are coerced to ints
if not(isinteger(varargin{1}))
varargin{1} = int32(varargin{1});
end
 
%Maps out of bound values to the proper range
if varargin{1} > 10
theInt.value = varargin{1} - (10 * (idivide(varargin{1},10,'ceil') - 1));
elseif varargin{1} < 1
theInt.value = varargin{1} + (10 * (idivide(abs(varargin{1}),10,'floor') + 1));
else
theInt.value = varargin{1};
end
end
end %constructor
 
%Overload the "+" operator
function sum = plus(firstNumber,secondNumber)
 
if isa(firstNumber,'RingInt') && isa(secondNumber,'RingInt')
sum = firstNumber.value + secondNumber.value;
elseif isa(firstNumber,'RingInt') && not(isa(secondNumber,'RingInt'))
sum = firstNumber.value + secondNumber;
else
sum = secondNumber.value + firstNumber;
end
 
sum = RingInt(sum);
 
end %+
 
%Overload the "-" operator
function difference = minus(firstNumber,secondNumber)
 
if isa(firstNumber,'RingInt') && isa(secondNumber,'RingInt')
difference = firstNumber.value - secondNumber.value;
elseif isa(firstNumber,'RingInt') && not(isa(secondNumber,'RingInt'))
difference = firstNumber.value - secondNumber;
else
difference = firstNumber - secondNumber.value;
end
 
difference = RingInt(difference);
 
end %-
 
%Overload the "==" operator
function trueFalse = eq(firstNumber,secondNumber)
 
if isa(firstNumber,'RingInt') && isa(secondNumber,'RingInt')
trueFalse = firstNumber.value == secondNumber.value;
else
error 'You can only compare a RingInt to another RingInt';
end
 
end %==
 
 
%Overload the display() function
function display(ringInt)
disp(ringInt);
end
 
%Overload the disp() function
function disp(ringInt)
disp(sprintf('\nans =\n\n\t %d\n',ringInt.value));
end
 
end %methods
end %classdef
 
 

Sample Usage:

>> RingInt(10) + 1
 
ans =
 
1
 
>> RingInt(5) - 20
 
ans =
 
5
 
>> a = RingInt(3)
 
ans =
 
3
 
>> a == RingInt(3)
 
ans =
 
1

Modula-3[edit]

In Modula-3, subrange types are automatically subtypes of their base type, so if you define a type called MyInt to be the subrange [1..10] then MyInt is a subtype of INTEGER. If we defined MyChar as the subrange ['A'..'C'] then MyChar would be a subtype of CHAR.

TYPE MyInt = [1..10];

MyInt can now be used anywhere an INTEGER can, such as the standard arithmetic functions. Trying to assign a value outside of the range of MyInt will result in a compile time warning, and/or a runtime error.

Nim[edit]

Subranges are supported by the language and automatically boundchecked:

type
MyInt = range[0..10]
 
var x: MyInt = 5
 
x = x + 6 # Runtime error: value out of range: 11
 
x = 12 # Compile-time error: conversion from int literal(12) to MyInt is invalid

OCaml[edit]

Exception: Out_of_bounds.

which can be used with floats in the same way:

val rf : float bounds = {min = 1.; max = 10.}
 
# let a = mk_bounded 2.2 rf
and b = mk_bounded 5.6 rf in
op ( +. ) a b ;;

Oz[edit]

Normally new data types are implemented as classes or as abstract data types in modules. We cannot extend operators, though.

In this case we are lucky. As a feature of constraint programming we can easily constrain the domain of integers.

declare
I
in
I::1#10
I = {Pow 2 4}

Output:

Pascal[edit]

type
naturalTen = 1..10;

As per ISO 7185, any (attempted) assignment out of range constitutes an error. However, the processor (usually a compiler) is permitted to leave such an error undetected. Modern compilers such as Delphi and FPC give the programmer a choice, which behavior is desired, by providing compiler switches/directives.

Perl[edit]

Works with: Perl version 5
package One_To_Ten;
use Carp qw(croak);
use Tie::Scalar qw();
use base qw(Tie::StdScalar);
 
sub STORE {
my $self = shift;
my $val = int shift;
croak 'out of bounds' if $val < 1 or $val > 10;
$$self = $val;
};
 
package main;
tie my $t, 'One_To_Ten';
$t = 3; # ok
$t = 5.2; # ok, silently coerced to int
$t = -2; # dies, too small
$t = 11; # dies, too big
$t = 'xyzzy';
# dies, too small. string is 0 interpreted numerically

Perl 6[edit]

subset OneToTen of Int where 1..10;
 
my OneToTen $n = 5;
$n += 6;

Here the result 11 fails to smartmatch against the range 1..10, so the second assignment throws an exception. You may use any valid smartmatch predicate within a where clause, so the following one-argument closure is also legal:

subset Prime of Int where -> $n { $n > 1 and so $n %% none 2 .. $n.sqrt }

Phix[edit]

Translation of: Euphoria

In Phix types are special functions that may be used in declaring the allowed values for a variable. A type must have exactly one parameter and should return true (non-zero) or false (zero). Types can also be called just like other functions. The types object, sequence, string, atom and integer are predefined.

type iten(integer i)
return i>=1 and i<=10
end type

You can then declare variables of the new type just as you would the builtins

integer i
iten i10

and typechecking occurs automatically

i = 11  -- fine
i10 = 11 -- runtime error

PicoLisp[edit]

Translation of: Java
(class +BoundedInt)
# value lower upper
 
(dm T (Low Up)
(=: lower (min Low Up))
(=: upper (max Low Up)) )
 
(de "checkBounds" (Val)
(if (>= (: upper) Val (: lower))
Val
(throw 'boundedIntOutOfBounds
(pack
"value " Val
" is out of bounds [" (: lower) "," (: upper) "]" ) ) ) )
 
(dm set> (Val)
(=: value ("checkBounds" Val)) )
 
(dm +> (Val)
(=: value ("checkBounds" (+ Val (: value)))) )
 
(dm val> ()
(: value) )
 
(de main ()
(let (A (new '(+BoundedInt) 1 10) B (new '(+BoundedInt) 1 10))
(set> A 6)
(when (catch 'boundedIntOutOfBounds (set> B 12) NIL)
(prinl @) )
(set> B 9)
(when (catch 'boundedIntOutOfBounds (+> A (val> B)) NIL)
(prinl @) ) ) )

Output:

: (main)
value 12 is out of bounds [1,10]
value 15 is out of bounds [1,10]

PowerShell[edit]

 
[Int][ValidateRange(1,10)]$n = 3 # $n can only accept integers between 1 and 10
 

Python[edit]

This doesn't really apply as Python names don't have a type, but something can be done:

>>> class num(int):
def __init__(self, b):
if 1 <= b <= 10:
return int.__init__(self+0)
else:
raise ValueError,"Value %s should be >=0 and <= 10" % b
 
 
>>> x = num(3)
>>> x = num(11)
 
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<pyshell#394>", line 1, in <module>
x = num(11)
File "<pyshell#392>", line 6, in __init__
raise ValueError,"Value %s should be >=0 and <= 10" % b
ValueError: Value 11 should be >=0 and <= 10
>>> x
3
>>> type(x)
<class '__main__.num'>
>>>

Racket[edit]

Most Racket programmers will use contracts to enforce additional guarantees on values. In the following example, the program exports x with a contract that ensures it is a number between 1 and 10.

 
#lang racket
 
(provide (contract-out [x 1-to-10/c]))
 
(define 1-to-10/c (between/c 1 10))
 
(define x 5)
 

In Typed Racket, it is possible to define a type that only contains the integers from 1 to 10. However, this type is inconvenient to use and is unlikely to be used in practice.

 
#lang typed/racket
 
(define-type 1UpTo10 (U 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10))
 
;; type-checks
(: x 1UpTo10)
(define x 3)
 
;; does not type-check
(: y 1UpTo10)
(define y 18)
 

Retro[edit]

This creates a data element that returns a value from 1 to 10. Alteration of the value is possible using to.

Ruby[edit]

ref http://codeidol.com/other/rubyckbk/Numbers/Simulating-a-Subclass-of-Fixnum/

Some object-oriented languages won't let you subclass the "basic" data types
like integers. Other languages implement those data types as classes, so you
can subclass them, no questions asked. Ruby implements numbers as classes
(Integer, with its concrete subclasses Fixnum and Bignum), and you can subclass
those classes. If you try, though, you'll quickly discover that your subclasses
are useless: they don't have constructors.  

Ruby jealously guards the creation of new Integer objects. This way it ensures
that, for instance, there can be only one Fixnum instance for a given number

The easiest way to delegate all methods is to create a class that's nearly empty
and define a method_missing method.
require 'test/unit'
include Test::Unit::Assertions
 
class MyInt
@@min = 1
@@max = 10
 
attr_reader :value
private :value
 
def initialize(val)
begin
v = Integer(val)
rescue ArgumentError
raise ArgumentError, "invalid value '#{val}', must be an integer"
end
 
unless v.between?(@@min, @@max)
raise ArgumentError, "invalid value '#{v}', must be between #{@@min} and #{@@max}"
end
 
@value = v
end
 
def method_missing(m, *args)
super unless @value.respond_to?(m)
myint_args = args.collect do |arg|
arg.kind_of?(self.class) ? arg.to_int : arg
end
result = @value.send(m, *myint_args)
return result if m == :coerce
case result
when Integer
MyInt.new(result)
when Array
result.collect do |element|
element.kind_of?(Integer) ? MyInt.new(element) : element
end
else
result
end
end
 
def respond_to?(method)
super or @value.respond_to? method
end
 
def to_int
@value
end
def to_f
Float(@value)
end
def to_s
@value.to_s
end
def inspect
to_s
end
end
 
 
assert_raise(ArgumentError) { MyInt.new("foo") } # => invalid value 'foo', must be an integer
assert_raise(ArgumentError) { MyInt.new(11) } # => invalid value '11', must be an integer
 
a = MyInt.new(7)
b = MyInt.new(5)
 
c = 5 + a
assert_kind_of(Fixnum, c)
assert_equal(12, c)
 
c = a + 2
assert_kind_of(MyInt, c)
assert_equal(9, c.to_int)
 
c = a + 2.8
assert_kind_of(Float, c)
assert_equal(9.8, c)
 
c = a - b
assert_kind_of(MyInt, c)
assert_equal(2, c.to_int)
 
assert_raise(ArgumentError) { c = a + b } # => invalid value '12', must be an integer
assert_raise(ArgumentError) { c = b - a } # => invalid value '-2', must be an integer

Rust[edit]

As of version 1.36.0, Rust does not provide special language support for declaring new types which are range-constrained versions of its built-in primitives.

However, it is considered idiomatic to use single-element "tuple structs" (data structures with unnamed fields) to wrap primitive types in containers which impose runtime restrictions on their use without altering their in-memory representation.

The Rust ecosystem refers to this as the "newtype pattern" and an example would be the String type from the standard library, which wraps a Vec<u8> to uphold a "contents are valid UTF-8" invariant and expose an alternative set of methods.

This idiom is bolstered by Rust's collection of traits (interfaces) which a type can implement to integrate with existing conversions and operators.

For example, it is common for functions which take paths as input but don't modify them to take AsRef<Path>, which allows them to transparently accept any type which has implemented that conversion.

A simple example of implementing the newtype pattern manually would look like this:

use std::convert::TryFrom;
 
mod test_mod {
use std::convert::TryFrom;
use std::fmt;
 
// Because the `i8` is not `pub` this cannot be directly constructed
// by code outside this module
#[derive(Copy, Clone, Debug)]
pub struct TwoDigit(i8);
 
impl TryFrom<i8> for TwoDigit {
type Error = &'static str;
 
fn try_from(value: i8) -> Result<Self, Self::Error> {
if value < -99 || value > 99 {
Err("Number cannot fit into two decimal digits")
} else {
Ok(TwoDigit(value))
}
}
}
 
impl Into<i8> for TwoDigit {
fn into(self) -> i8 { self.0 }
}
 
// This powers `println!`'s `{}` token.
impl fmt::Display for TwoDigit {
fn fmt(&self, f: &mut fmt::Formatter<'_>) -> fmt::Result {
write!(f, "{}", self.0)
}
}
}
 
pub fn main() {
let foo = test_mod::TwoDigit::try_from(50).unwrap();
let bar: i8 = foo.into();
println!("{} == {}", foo, bar);
}

However, there exist crates such as derive_more to automate the parts other than the restricted construction logic based on a simple #[derive(Add, Copy, Clone, Debug, Div, Into, Mul, Sub)] and so on and so forth.

Scala[edit]

import TinyInt._

say c # => 9
say c.class # => MyInt
 
a *= 2 # a=6
say a+b # error: class `MyInt` does not match MyInt(12)

Tcl[edit]

Tcl does not attach types to values or variables, but it does allow the programmer to create traces on variables that can be used to enforce type-like constraints among other things. Traces are procedures that execute when variables are read, written and/or unset. (Traces are also available for commands and for the execution of a script.) Tcl's compiler does not enforce these constraints; they're strictly runtime entities.

namespace eval ::myIntType {
variable value_cache
array set value_cache {}
variable type integer
variable min 1
variable max 10
variable errMsg "cannot set %s to %s: must be a $type between $min and $max"
}
proc ::myIntType::declare varname {
set ns [namespace current]
uplevel [list trace add variable $varname write ${ns}::write]
uplevel [list trace add variable $varname unset ${ns}::unset_var]
}
proc ::myIntType::unset_var {varname args} {
variable value_cache
unset value_cache($varname)
}
proc ::myIntType::validate {value} {
variable type
variable min
variable max
expr {[string is $type -strict $value] && $min <= $value && $value <= $max}
}
proc ::myIntType::write {varname args} {
variable value_cache
upvar $varname var
set value $var
if {[validate $value]} {
set value_cache($varname) $value
} else {
if {[info exists value_cache($varname)]} {
set var $value_cache($varname)
}
variable errMsg
error [format $errMsg $varname $value]
}
}

So, in an interactive tclsh we can see:

UNIX Shell[edit]

Works with: ksh93

ksh93 has

  • compound variables and
  • "discipline functions" which get fired at get/set/unset events
typeset -i boundedint
function boundedint.set {
nameref var=${.sh.name}
if (( 1 <= .sh.value && .sh.value <= 10 )); then
# stash the valid value as a backup, in case we need to restore it
typeset -i var.previous_value=${.sh.value}
else
print -u2 "value out of bounds"
# restore previous value
.sh.value=${var.previous_value}
fi
}
 
boundedint=-5; echo $boundedint
boundedint=5; echo $boundedint
boundedint=15; echo $boundedint
Output:
value out of bounds
0
5
value out of bounds
5

Ursala[edit]

We define a new record type my_number, having two fields, of which one is the number and the other is the pair of bounds. Fields in records can have initializing functions, and any function can throw an exception, so we make the initializing function of the number field that which throws an exception if it's outside the bounds. The initializing function of the bounds field sets its default values to 1 and 10. The initializing functions are automatically evaluated any time a record of type _my_number is constructed by a function of the form my_number$[...], so we can proceed to define all the arithmetic operations we need as functions of this form in terms of the corresponding operations on natural numbers with no further bounds checking required.

#import nat
 
my_number ::
 
the_number %n -|~bounds.&BZ,~&B+ [email protected]+ ~/the_number bounds|-?(~the_number,<'out of bounds'>!%)
bounds  %nW ~bounds.&B?(~bounds,(1,10)!)
 
add = my_number$[the_number: sum+ ~the_number~~]
mul = my_number$[the_number: product+ ~the_number~~]

test program:

#cast _my_number
 
total = add(my_number[the_number: 3],my_number[the_number: 4])

output:

my_number[the_number: 7,bounds: (1,10)]

test program demonstrating bounds checking:

#cast _my_number
 
total = mul(my_number[the_number: 3],my_number[the_number: 4])

compile-time diagnostic output:

fun:prim.fun:3:12: out of bounds

Note that restricted types are not idiomatic in Ursala if all we really want is integer arithmetic with run-time bounds checking, which can be done more directly like this.

#import nat
 
#library+
 
#import
^|A(~&,//+ nrange(1,10)?</~& <'out of bounds'>!%)*
~&n-=<'sum','difference','product','quotient','remainder'>*~ %QI nat

This code creates a new library of functions of natural numbers by selecting several of them by name from the standard nat library and putting a wrapper around each one that checks the bounds on the result and throws an exception if necessary. These functions can be used as drop-in replacements for the standard ones.

Visual Basic[edit]

VB can't really do primitive data types, but they can be faked with classes.

TinyInt.cls:

Private mvarValue As Integer
 
Public Property Let Value(ByVal vData As Integer)
If (vData > 10) Or (vData < 1) Then
Error 380 'Invalid property value; could also use 6, Overflow
Else
mvarValue = vData
End If
End Property
 
Public Property Get Value() As Integer
Value = mvarValue
End Property
 
Private Sub Class_Initialize()
'vb defaults to 0 for numbers; let's change that...
mvarValue = 1
End Sub

Usage (in this case, from a form):

Public x As TinyInt
 
Private Sub Form_Click()
'0-11, to give chance of errors; also not integers, because VB massages data to fit, if possible.
x = Rnd * 12
Me.Print x
End Sub
 
Private Sub Form_Load()
Randomize Timer
Set x = New TinyInt '"Set = New" REQUIRED
End Sub

Visual Basic .NET[edit]

See C# for why this task technically impossible in VB.NET.

Through operator overloading, it is possible to declare types in VB.NET with the full complement of operators available on the primitive types. The following structure attempts to mimic the behavior of the Integer type in VB.NET on .NET Core as much as possible, including interfaces and static members, delegating as much implementation as possible to the Integer type itself.

Note that some operators return a Double instead of a new LimitedInt. This was intentional in order to match the behavior of the corresponding Integer operators in VB.NET. Also note that some members are commented out. This is because the newest supported release of VB.NET (as of 2019-09-14) does not support the .NET Core Span(Of T) and ReadOnlySpan(Of T) types.
