Numbers are unsigned integers that are composed of decimal digits. Signed numbers, floating point, hex, and octal numbers are not supported in Unlang.

These limitations are largely a result of the limitations of the underlying protocol. There is no way to transport signed numbers or floating point numbers in RADIUS, so there is no need to perform signed or floating point calculations.

The maximum value for a number is machine-dependent but is at least 32 bits or 4,294,967,296. In some cases, it may be necessary to perform calculations on numbers larger than 32 bits, as when calculating total data traffic to or from a user. In those cases, the calculations should either be one carefully to avoid 32-bit overflow or be done using real programming language.
