Constructor Function: integer()

This section describes 'integer' constructor function integer().

New "integer" data object can be created with the "integer" constructor function, integer(), which has the following syntax:

integer(a = 0)

Parameters:
   a - An "integer" data object. Default is 0.

Return: 
   Returns a new "integer" data object representing 
   the same value as "a".

Examples of how to use "integer" constructor function:

integer(); # create a new data object representing 0

x = integer(); # assign a new data object representing 0 to x

# assign a new data object representing 3 to y
y = integer(1 + 2); 

Design options:

1. Let the constructor return 0 if no parameter provided.

2. Make the parameter as required for the constructor.
