       int intValue (in)		     Integer  value used to initialize
					     or	set a Tcl value.

       long longValue (in)		     Long integer value	used  to  ini-
					     tialize or	set a Tcl value.

       Tcl_WideInt wideValue (in)	     Wide  integer  value used to ini-
					     tialize or	set a Tcl value.

       Tcl_Obj *objPtr (in/out)		     For  Tcl_SetIntObj,   Tcl_SetLon-
					     gObj,    Tcl_SetWideIntObj,   and
					     Tcl_SetBignumObj, this points  to
					     the  value	 in  which to store an
					     integral value.  For  Tcl_GetInt-
					     FromObj,	   Tcl_GetLongFromObj,
					     Tcl_GetWideIntFromObj,   Tcl_Get-
					     BignumFromObj,    and   Tcl_Take-

					     value  from  which	to retrieve an
					     integral value.

       Tcl_Interp *interp (in/out)	     When non-NULL, an	error  message
					     is	 left here when	integral value
					     retrieval fails.

       int *intPtr (out)		     Points to place to	store the  in-
					     teger  value  retrieved  from ob-

       long *longPtr (out)		     Points to place to	store the long
					     integer  value retrieved from ob-

       Tcl_WideInt *widePtr (out)	     Points to place to	store the wide
					     integer  value retrieved from ob-

       mp_int *bigValue	(in/out)	     Points to a multi-precision inte-
					     ger  structure  declared  by  the
					     LibTomMath	library.

       double doubleValue (in)		     Double value from which the inte-
					     ger  part	is determined and used
					     to	initialize  a  multi-precision
					     integer value.

       These  procedures  are used to create, modify, and read Tcl values that
       hold integral values.

       The different routines exist to accommodate different integral types in
       C with which values might be exchanged.	The C integral types for which
       Tcl provides value exchange routines are	int,  long  int,  Tcl_WideInt,
       and  mp_int.  The int and long int types	are provided by	the C language
       standard.  The Tcl_WideInt type is a typedef  defined  to  be  whatever
       signed	integral  type	covers	at  least  the	64-bit	integer	 range
       (-9223372036854775808 to	9223372036854775807).  Depending on the	 plat-
       form  and  the C	compiler, the actual type might	be long	int, long long
       int, __int64, or	something else.	 The mp_int type is a  multiple-preci-
       sion  integer type defined by the LibTomMath multiple-precision integer

       The Tcl_NewIntObj, Tcl_NewLongObj, Tcl_NewWideIntObj, and Tcl_NewBignu-
       mObj routines each create and return a new Tcl value initialized	to the
       integral	value of the argument.	The returned Tcl value is unshared.

       The Tcl_SetIntObj, Tcl_SetLongObj, Tcl_SetWideIntObj, and Tcl_SetBignu-
       mObj routines each set the value	of an existing Tcl value pointed to by
       objPtr to the integral value provided by	the other argument.   The  ob-
       jPtr  argument must point to an unshared	Tcl value.  Any	attempt	to set
       the value of a shared Tcl value violates	 Tcl's	copy-on-write  policy.
       Any  existing  string  representation or	internal representation	in the
       unshared	Tcl value will be freed	as a consequence of  setting  the  new

       The   Tcl_GetIntFromObj,	  Tcl_GetLongFromObj,	Tcl_GetWideIntFromObj,
       Tcl_GetBignumFromObj, and Tcl_TakeBignumFromObj routines	attempt	to re-
       trieve an integral value	of the appropriate type	from the Tcl value ob-
       jPtr.  If the attempt succeeds, then TCL_OK is returned,	and the	 value
       is  written  to	the storage provided by	the caller.  The attempt might
       fail if objPtr does not hold an integral	value, or if the value exceeds
       the  range of the target	type.  If the attempt fails, then TCL_ERROR is
       returned, and if	interp is non-NULL, an error message is	 left  in  in-
       terp.   The  Tcl_ObjType	 of  objPtr  may be changed to make subsequent
       calls to	the same routine more efficient. Unlike	the  other  functions,
       Tcl_TakeBignumFromObj may set the content of the	Tcl value objPtr to an
       empty string in the process of retrieving the multiple-precision	 inte-
       ger value.

       The  choice  between  Tcl_GetBignumFromObj and Tcl_TakeBignumFromObj is
       governed	by how the caller will continue	to use objPtr.	If  after  the
       mp_int value is retrieved from objPtr, the caller will make no more use
       of objPtr, then using Tcl_TakeBignumFromObj permits Tcl to detect  when
       an  unshared  objPtr  permits  the value	to be moved instead of copied,
       which should be more efficient.	If anything later in  the  caller  re-
       quires  objPtr  to continue to hold the same value, then	Tcl_GetBignum-
       FromObj must be chosen.

       The Tcl_InitBignumFromDouble routine is a utility  procedure  that  ex-
       tracts the integer part of doubleValue and stores that integer value in
       the mp_int value	bigValue.
