RADON data types¶
The basic data types (also called value types) existing in RADON are modelled to resemble those of most typed programming languages:
Additionaly, there exist six complex data types or structure types:
Each of these nine types and their available operators are explained below.
Reading data types documentation
Operators for each of the data types in this documentation are specified as:
// TypeScript-alike function signature nameOfTheMethod(argument: TypeOfArgument): ReturnTypeOfMethod
// Actual usage in RADON OPERATORNAME // Operators without arguments, aka "simple calls" [ OPERATORNAME, argument ] // Operators with arguments, aka "compound calls"
All across this documentation, unquoted uppercase names like
STRING_PARSEJSON identify different operators and constants that
equate to a single byte when encoded.
A list of constants can be found in the Contants section.
