Number

Constructor which wraps a numeric value in an object.

Usage

var Number = require( '@stdlib/number/ctor' );

Number( value )

Returns a Number object.

var v = new Number( 5.0 );
// returns <Number>

Notes

  • This constructor should be used sparingly. Always prefer number primitives.

Examples

var randu = require( '@stdlib/random/base/randu' );
var Number = require( '@stdlib/number/ctor' );

var v;
var i;

for ( i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) {
    v = new Number( randu() );
    console.log( 'typeof %d: %s', v, typeof v );
}
