Scanner hasNextLong() method in Java with Examples

The hasNextLong() method of java.util.Scanner class returns true if the next token in this scanner’s input can be assumed as a Long value of the given radix. The scanner does not advance past any input. In case no radix is passed as a parameter, the function interprates the radix to be default radix and functions accordingly.

Syntax:

public boolean hasNextLong(int radix)
            or
public boolean hasNextLong()

Parameters: The function accepts a single parameter radix which is not a mandatory one. It specifies the radix used to interpret the token as a Long value.

Return Value: This function returns true if and only if this scanner’s next token is a valid Long value in the default radix.

Exceptions: The function throws IllegalStateException if this scanner is closed.

Below programs illustrate the above function:

            // check if the scanner's
            // next token is a Long with a radix 3
            System.out.print("" + scanner.hasNextLong(3));
  
            // print what is scanned
            System.out.print(" -> " + scanner.next() + "\n");
        }
  
        // close the scanner
        scanner.close();
    }
