Public Methods

public byte byteValue ()

Added in API level 1

Returns
byte the primitive byte value of this object.

public static int compare (double double1, double double2)

Added in API level 1

Compares the two specified double values. There are two special cases:

  • Double.NaN is equal to Double.NaN and it is greater than any other double value, including Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY;
  • +0.0d is greater than -0.0d

Parameters
double1 double: the first value to compare.
double2 double: the second value to compare.
Returns
int a negative value if double1 is less than double2; 0 if double1 and double2 are equal; a positive value if double1 is greater than double2.

public int compareTo (Double object)

Added in API level 1

Compares this object to the specified double object to determine their relative order. There are two special cases:

  • Double.NaN is equal to Double.NaN and it is greater than any other double value, including Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY;
  • +0.0d is greater than -0.0d

Parameters
object Double: the double object to compare this object to.
Returns
int a negative value if the value of this double is less than the value of object; 0 if the value of this double and the value of object are equal; a positive value if the value of this double is greater than the value of object.
Throws
NullPointerException if object is null.

public static long doubleToLongBits (double value)

Added in API level 1

Returns an integer corresponding to the bits of the given IEEE 754 double precision value. All Not-a-Number (NaN) values are converted to a single NaN representation (0x7ff8000000000000L) (compare to doubleToRawLongBits(double)).

Parameters
value double
Returns
long

public static long doubleToRawLongBits (double value)

Added in API level 1

Returns an integer corresponding to the bits of the given IEEE 754 double precision value. Not-a-Number (NaN) values are preserved (compare to doubleToLongBits(double)).

Parameters
value double
Returns
long

public double doubleValue ()

Added in API level 1

Gets the primitive value of this double.

Returns
double this object's primitive value.

public boolean equals (Object object)

Added in API level 1

Tests this double for equality with object. To be equal, object must be an instance of Double and doubleToLongBits must give the same value for both objects.

Note that, unlike ==, -0.0 and +0.0 compare unequal, and NaNs compare equal by this method.

Parameters
object Object: the object to compare this double with.
Returns
boolean true if the specified object is equal to this Double; false otherwise.

public float floatValue ()

Added in API level 1

Returns this object's value as a float. Might involve rounding.

Returns
float the primitive float value of this object.

public int hashCode ()

Added in API level 1

Returns an integer hash code for this object. By contract, any two objects for which equals(Object) returns true must return the same hash code value. This means that subclasses of Object usually override both methods or neither method.

Note that hash values must not change over time unless information used in equals comparisons also changes.

See Writing a correct hashCode method if you intend implementing your own hashCode method.

Returns
int this object's hash code.

public int intValue ()

Added in API level 1

Returns this object's value as an int. Might involve rounding and/or truncating the value, so it fits into an int.

Returns
int the primitive int value of this object.

public static boolean isInfinite (double d)

Added in API level 1

Indicates whether the specified double represents an infinite value.

Parameters
d double: the double to check.
Returns
boolean true if the value of d is positive or negative infinity; false otherwise.

public boolean isInfinite ()

Added in API level 1

Indicates whether this object represents an infinite value.

Returns
boolean true if the value of this double is positive or negative infinity; false otherwise.

public boolean isNaN ()

Added in API level 1

Indicates whether this object is a Not-a-Number (NaN) value.

Returns
boolean true if this double is Not-a-Number; false if it is a (potentially infinite) double number.

public static boolean isNaN (double d)

Added in API level 1

Indicates whether the specified double is a Not-a-Number (NaN) value.

Parameters
d double: the double value to check.
Returns
boolean true if d is Not-a-Number; false if it is a (potentially infinite) double number.

double

public long longValue ()

Added in API level 1

public String toString ()

Added in API level 1

Returns a string containing a concise, human-readable description of this object. Subclasses are encouraged to override this method and provide an implementation that takes into account the object's type and data. The default implementation is equivalent to the following expression:

   getClass().getName() + '@' + Integer.toHexString(hashCode())

See Writing a useful toString method if you intend implementing your own toString method.

Returns
String a printable representation of this object.

public static Double valueOf (String string)

Added in API level 1

Parses the specified string as a double value.
