Numeric

Numeric is the class from which all higher-level numeric classes should inherit.

Numeric allows instantiation of heap-allocated objects. Other core numeric classes such as Integer are implemented as immediates, which means that each Integer is a single immutable object which is always passed by value.

a = 1
1.object_id == a.object_id   #=> true

There can only ever be one instance of the integer 1, for example. Ruby ensures this by preventing instantiation and duplication.

Integer.new(1)   #=> NoMethodError: undefined method `new' for Integer:Class
1.dup            #=> TypeError: can't dup Integer

For this reason, Numeric should be used when defining other numeric classes.

Classes which inherit from Numeric must implement coerce, which returns a two-member Array containing an object that has been coerced into an instance of the new class and self (see coerce).

Inheriting classes should also implement arithmetic operator methods (+, -, * and /) and the <=> operator (see Comparable). These methods may rely on coerce to ensure interoperability with instances of other numeric classes.

class Tally < Numeric
  def initialize(string)
    @string = string
  end

  def to_s
    @string
  end

  def to_i
    @string.size
  end

  def coerce(other)
    [self.class.new('|' * other.to_i), self]
  end

  def <=>(other)
    to_i <=> other.to_i
  end

  def +(other)
    self.class.new('|' * (to_i + other.to_i))
  end

  def -(other)
    self.class.new('|' * (to_i - other.to_i))
  end

  def *(other)
    self.class.new('|' * (to_i * other.to_i))
  end

  def /(other)
    self.class.new('|' * (to_i / other.to_i))
  end
end

tally = Tally.new('||')
puts tally * 2            #=> "||||"
puts tally > 1            #=> true

Numeric implements this by converting its value to a Float and invoking Float#ceil.

If numeric is the same type as num, returns an array [numeric, num]. Otherwise, returns an array with both numeric and num represented as Float objects.

This coercion mechanism is used by Ruby to handle mixed-type numeric operations: it is intended to find a compatible common type between the two operands of the operator.

1.coerce(2.5)   #=> [2.5, 1.0]
1.2.coerce(3)   #=> [3.0, 1.2]
1.coerce(2)     #=> [2, 1]

Equivalent to num.divmod(numeric)[0].

See #divmod.

 
               static VALUE
num_div(VALUE x, VALUE y)
{
    if (rb_equal(INT2FIX(0), y)) rb_num_zerodiv();

}
            
divmod(numeric) → array click to toggle source

Returns an array containing the quotient and modulus obtained by dividing num by numeric.

If q, r = x.divmod(y), then

q = floor(x/y)

step(by: step, to: limit) {|i| block } → self click to toggle source
step(by: step, to: limit) → an_enumerator
step(limit=nil, step=1) {|i| block } → self
step(limit=nil, step=1) → an_enumerator

Invokes the given block with the sequence of numbers starting at num, incremented by step (defaulted to 1) on each call.

The loop finishes when the value to be passed to the block is greater than limit (if step is positive) or less than limit (if step is negative), where limit is defaulted to infinity.

In the recommended keyword argument style, either or both of step and limit (default infinity) can be omitted. In the fixed position argument style, zero as a step (i.e. num.step(limit, 0)) is not allowed for historical compatibility reasons.

If all the arguments are integers, the loop operates using an integer counter.

If any of the arguments are floating point numbers, all are converted to floats, and the loop is executed floor(n + n*Float::EPSILON) + 1 times, where n = (limit - num)/step.

Otherwise, the loop starts at num, uses either the less-than (<) or greater-than (>) operator to compare the counter against limit, and increments itself using the + operator.

If no block is given, an Enumerator is returned instead.

For example:

p 1.step.take(4)
p 10.step(by: -1).take(4)
3.step(to: 5) {|i| print i, " " }
1.step(10, 2) {|i| print i, " " }
Math::E.step(to: Math::PI, by: 0.2) {|f| print f, " " }

Will produce:

to_c → complex click to toggle source

Returns the value as a complex.

numeric_to_c(VALUE self)
{

}
            
to_int → integer click to toggle source

Invokes the child class’s to_i method to convert num to an integer.

1.0.class          #=> Float
1.0.to_int.class   #=> Integer
1.0.to_i.class     #=> Integer

num_to_int(VALUE num)
{

}
            
truncate([ndigits]) → integer or float click to toggle source

Returns num truncated (toward zero) to a precision of ndigits decimal digits (default: 0).

Numeric implements this by converting its value to a Float and invoking Float#truncate.

 
               static VALUE
num_truncate(int argc, VALUE *argv, VALUE num)
{
    return flo_truncate(argc, argv, rb_Float(num));
}
            
zero? → true or false click to toggle source

Returns true if num has a zero value.

 
               static VALUE
num_zero_p(VALUE num)
{
    if (FIXNUM_P(num)) {
        if (FIXNUM_ZERO_P(num)) {
            return Qtrue;
        }
    }
    else if (RB_TYPE_P(num, T_BIGNUM)) {
        if (rb_bigzero_p(num)) {
            /* this should not happen usually */
            return Qtrue;
        }
    }
    else if (rb_equal(num, INT2FIX(0))) {
        return Qtrue;
    }
    return Qfalse;
