^A cast of a REAL value into an INTEGER will truncate the fractional - part of the REAL. ^If a REAL is too large to be represented as an - INTEGER then the result of the cast is the largest negative integer: - -9223372036854775808. + part of the REAL. ^If a REAL is greater than the greatest possible signed + integer (+9223372036854775807) then the result is the greatest possible + signed integer and if the REAL is less than the least possible signed + integer (-9223372036854775808) then the result is the least possible + signed integer. NUMERIC ^Casting a TEXT or BLOB value into NUMERIC first does a forced conversion into REAL but then further converts the result into INTEGER if
