What is the maximum integer value of a Double (In Delphi 7) ?
Posted on 2008-11-04
My question is 2 part:
1). I have a legacy Delphi 7 application that has a very large file and uses a saved double value to find items when seeking in the file. It always stores just integer valued in the double ( filepos).
My question is how large can this integer value be before it is exceeded. I'd like the a answer in the format 9,999,999,999,999 please.
2). Is there another data type that occupies the same number of bytes that could be used instead ( like int64)?
