Performing Arithmetic with Numbers Create UPC Code In Visual C# Using Barcode printer for Visual Studio .NET Control to generate, create UPCA image in VS .NET applications. Draw UCC  12 In .NET Using Barcode drawer for ASP.NET Control to generate, create UPCA image in ASP.NET applications. You can perform arithmetic by using the arithmetic operators discussed in 3 Here is a brief summary: Universal Product Code Version A Generation In VS .NET Using Barcode printer for .NET framework Control to generate, create GTIN  12 image in .NET framework applications. UCC  12 Maker In VB.NET Using Barcode maker for .NET framework Control to generate, create UPCA Supplement 2 image in .NET framework applications. Use + for addition and for subtraction Use * for multiplication and / for straightforward division Use div for integral division (ignoring the remainder) Use mod for modulus (returning the remainder) Use ^ for exponentiation Drawing Code39 In .NET Framework Using Barcode generation for ASP.NET Control to generate, create ANSI/AIM Code 39 image in ASP.NET applications. Bar Code Creation In Java Using Barcode creation for Java Control to generate, create bar code image in Java applications. You can use these operators with either integer numbers or real numbers The type of result depends on the numbers you use For example, if you multiply two integers, you get an integer; but if you multiply an integer by a real number, or a real number by another real number, you get a real number If necessary, you can coerce the result of a calculation to another data type, as discussed next Generating Bar Code In Java Using Barcode creation for BIRT Control to generate, create bar code image in Eclipse BIRT applications. Code 3/9 Scanner In .NET Framework Using Barcode decoder for VS .NET Control to read, scan read, scan image in VS .NET applications. Coercing Numbers to Other Data Types
Draw UPC Code In Java Using Barcode creator for Java Control to generate, create UCC  12 image in Java applications. UPC  13 Printer In Java Using Barcode printer for BIRT Control to generate, create GTIN  13 image in BIRT applications. You can easily coerce a number to the other type real number to integer number, or vice versa or to a list or a string To coerce a real number to an integer number in effect, rounding it to the nearest number use as integer For example, 15 as integer returns 2 To coerce an integer number to a real number, use as real AppleScript adds a decimal point and a 0 to the end of the integer number to create the real number For example, 100 as real returns 1000 To coerce an integer number or real number to a string, use as string The string contains the same number as the integer number or real number used For example, 254 as string returns "254"; 255693 as string returns "255693" To coerce an integer number or real number to a list, use as list The result is a singleitem list For example, 189 as list returns the list {189} Code 128 Code Set C Creator In VS .NET Using Barcode creator for ASP.NET Control to generate, create Code 128 image in ASP.NET applications. Drawing UPCA In Java Using Barcode creation for BIRT reports Control to generate, create UPC A image in BIRT applications. AppleScript: A Beginner s Guide

Bar Code Printer In Java Using Barcode maker for Eclipse BIRT Control to generate, create barcode image in BIRT applications. You can coerce two data types to numbers
Making Bar Code In Java Using Barcode creation for Android Control to generate, create barcode image in Android applications. Bar Code Reader In VS .NET Using Barcode recognizer for .NET framework Control to read, scan read, scan image in .NET framework applications. boolean You can coerce a boolean value to an integer number by using as integer The result is 1 for true or 0 for false Bar Code Creation In C# Using Barcode drawer for .NET Control to generate, create barcode image in VS .NET applications. Reading Bar Code In Visual C#.NET Using Barcode scanner for Visual Studio .NET Control to read, scan read, scan image in Visual Studio .NET applications. NOTE
AppleScript doesn t let you coerce a boolean value directly to a real value, but there s nothing to stop you from coercing the boolean value to an integer value and then coercing the result to a real value (for example, myBool as integer as real) You ll end up with 10 for a true value and 00 for a false value string If you have a string that contains a number, you can coerce it to either an integer number or a real number Unless you know that the string contains no fractional part, or you want the result to be an integer number, coercing the string to a real number is usually the safer choice If you try to coerce a string that contains nonnumeric data to a number, AppleScript returns an error Working with Dates
In your scripts, you ll often need to work with dates, doing everything from returning the current date and time to calculating the number of days or weeks between two dates In this section, you ll come to grips with the powerful set of tools that AppleScript provides for working with dates Understanding How AppleScript Handles Dates
To work with dates, AppleScript uses the date object The date object is a floatingpoint number with the integer portion representing the date and the fractional portion representing the time within the day NOTE
The date object puts the Pope firmly above Caesar, using the Gregorian calendar and ignoring the Julian calendar Treating dates as numbers enables AppleScript (and computers in general) to calculate them easily But AppleScript lets you return any of the components of the date the year, the month, the hour, and so on simply enough 5: Working with Text, Numbers, and Dates
The date object returns the date in a standard format such as this: date "Thursday, April 1, 2010 6:14:47 AM" What you ll normally want to do is get at one or more of the separate parts of the date To do so, use the properties of the date object Table 55 explains these properties As you can see in the table, the properties return three types of data: text strings, integer numbers, and weird things (weekday and month) The text strings are great for when you need to insert a date as text (for example, in a document) or display it in a dialog box For example, the following statement returns the day and date from a date object: date string of date "1 December 2010" When you compile a script, AppleScript changes a date entered like this into its standard format, including the time, which it sets to midnight if you haven t specified any other time Here s what the compiled statement looks like: date string of date "Wednesday, December 01, 2010 12:00:00 AM"
