Java.lang.Long.valueOf() is a built-in method in Java of lang class that returns a Long object holding the value extracted from a specified String S when parsed with the radix that is given in the second argument. The first argument is interpreted as representing a signed long in the radix specified by the second argument, exactly as if the arguments were given to the parseLong(java.lang.String, int) method. It returns a result that is a Long object that represents the long value specified by the string.
public static Long valueOf(String s, int radix) throws NumberFormatException
Parameters: The method accepts two mandatory parameters:
- S: This refers to the string which is to be parsed.
- radix: This refers to the radix which is to be used in interpreting the string S.
Return type: The built-in method returns a Long object holding the value represented by the string argument in the specified radix.
Errors and Exception:
- NumberFormatException: If the number does not contain a parsable long the program returns.
