long
4.0.0 • Public • Publishedlong.js
A Long class for representing a 64 bit two'scomplement integer value derived from the Closure Library for standalone use and extended with unsigned support.
Background
As of ECMA262 5th Edition, "all the positive and negative integers whose magnitude is no greater than 2^{53} are representable in the Number type", which is "representing the doubleprecision 64bit format IEEE 754 values as specified in the IEEE Standard for Binary FloatingPoint Arithmetic". The maximum safe integer in JavaScript is 2^{53}1.
Example: 2^{64}1 is 18446744073709551615 but in JavaScript it evaluates to 18446744073709552000.
Furthermore, bitwise operators in JavaScript "deal only with integers in the range −2^{31} through 2^{31}−1, inclusive, or in the range 0 through 2^{32}−1, inclusive. These operators accept any value of the Number type but first convert each such value to one of 2^{32} integer values."
In some use cases, however, it is required to be able to reliably work with and perform bitwise operations on the full 64 bits. This is where long.js comes into play.
Usage
The class is compatible with CommonJS and AMD loaders and is exposed globally as Long
if neither is available.
var Long = ; var longVal = 0xFFFFFFFF 0x7FFFFFFF; console;...

, unsigned?:boolean
):Long
Returns a Long representing the given 32 bit integer value. 
Long.fromNumber(value:
number
, unsigned?:boolean
):Long
Returns a Long representing the given value, provided that it is a finite number. Otherwise, zero is returned. 
Long.fromString(str:
