java.lang.Long compareUnsigned(long x, long y)

Description

The Long.compareUnsigned(long x, long y) java method Compares two Long objects numerically.

Make a note that the compareUnsigned() method of Long class is static thus it should be accessed statically which means the we would be calling this method in this format:

Long.compareUnsigned(long x, long y)

Non static method is usually called by just declaring method_name(argument) however in this case since the method is static, it should be called by appending the class name as suffix. We will be encountering a compilation problem if we call the java compareUnsigned method non statically.

Method Syntax

public static int compareUnsigned(long x, long y)

Method Argument

Data Type Parameter Description
long x the first long to compare
long y the second long to compare

Method Returns
