Understandng toExactInt method in java.lang.Math package

java.lang.Math has numerous methods and our interest here is toIntExact() method.Consider the following example public class MathExact{   public static void main(String args[])   {      MathExact mathExact = new MathExact();      mathExact.proceed();   }      private void proceed()   {      long l = 100000000;      int i = (int) l;       System.out.println(“i: ” + i);            System.out.println(“Math.toIntExact(“+l+”);: ” + Math.toIntExact(l));   }} /* Expected output: [[email protected]]# java MathExacti: 100000000Math.toIntExact(100000000);: 100000000 */

Get the First Day of the Current Month

Adjusting Views to Reduce Visibility of Data in MySQL

Check for finite numbers in Python

Use the math module???s isfinite method to determine if a value is finite or not.  If it is not a number, the function returns false.  See below for an example:math.isfinite(10) returns True

How to detect Python version at runtime

At times, we want to run our code only if the version of Python engine is above a certain version. See below for sample code. Import sysversion = sys.version
