Double data type (LotusScript® Language)

Specifies a variable that contains a double-precision floating-point value maintained as an 8-byte floating point value.


The Double suffix character for implicit type declaration is #.

Double variables are initialized to 0.

The range of Double values is -1.7976931348623158E+308 to 1.7976931348623158E+308, inclusive.

On UNIX platforms, the range is -1.7976931348623156E+308 to 1.797693134862315E+308, inclusive.

The smallest non-zero Double value (disregarding sign) is 2.2250738585072014E-308.

LotusScript® aligns Double data on an 8-byte boundary. In user-defined types, declaring variables in order from highest to lowest alignment boundaries makes the most efficient use of data storage space.
