       Tcl_WideInt wideValue (in)	     Wide integer value used to initialize or set  a  Tcl

       Tcl_Obj *objPtr (in/out) 	     For  Tcl_SetIntObj,  Tcl_SetLongObj,  Tcl_SetWideIn-
					     tObj,  and  Tcl_SetBignumObj,  this  points  to  the
					     object  in  which	to  store an integral value.  For
					     Tcl_GetIntFromObj, 	      Tcl_GetLongFromObj,
					     Tcl_GetWideIntFromObj,   Tcl_GetBignumFromObj,   and
					     Tcl_TakeBignumFromObj, this  refers  to  the  object
					     from which to retrieve an integral value.

       Tcl_Interp *interp (in/out)	     When  non-NULL,  an  error message is left here when
					     integral value retrieval fails.

       int *intPtr (out)		     Points to place to store the integer value retrieved
					     from objPtr.

       long *longPtr (out)		     Points  to  place	to  store  the long integer value
					     retrieved from objPtr.

       Tcl_WideInt *widePtr (out)	     Points to place to  store	the  wide  integer  value
					     retrieved from objPtr.

       mp_int *bigValue (in/out)	     Points   to   a  multi-precision  integer	structure |
					     declared by the LibTomMath library.

       double doubleValue (in)		     Double value from which the integer part  is  deter- |
					     mined and used to initialize a multi-precision inte- |
					     ger value.

       These procedures are used to create, modify, and read Tcl objects that hold integral  val- |
       ues.											  |

       The  different routines exist to accommodate different integral types in C with which val- |
       ues might be exchanged.	The C integral types for which Tcl provides value  exchange  rou- |
       tines are int, long int, Tcl_WideInt, and mp_int.  The int and long int types are provided |
       by the C language standard.  The Tcl_WideInt type is a  typedef	defined  to  be  whatever |
       signed  integral  type  covers  at least the 64-bit integer range (-9223372036854775808 to |
       9223372036854775807).  Depending on the platform and the C compiler, the actual type might |
       be  long int, long long int, int64, or something else.  The mp_int type is a multiple-pre- |
       cision integer type defined by the LibTomMath multiple-precision integer library.	  |

       The Tcl_NewIntObj, Tcl_NewLongObj, Tcl_NewWideIntObj, and Tcl_NewBignumObj  routines  each |
       create and return a new Tcl object initialized to the integral value of the argument.  The |
       returned Tcl object is unshared. 							  |

       The Tcl_SetIntObj, Tcl_SetLongObj, Tcl_SetWideIntObj, and Tcl_SetBignumObj  routines  each |
       set  the  value	of an existing Tcl object pointed to by objPtr to the integral value pro- |
       vided by the other argument.  The objPtr argument must point to an  unshared  Tcl  object. |
       Any  attempt  to set the value of a shared Tcl object violates Tcl's copy-on-write policy. |
       Any existing string representation or internal representation in the unshared  Tcl  object |
       will be freed as a consequence of setting the new value. 				  |

       The  Tcl_GetIntFromObj,	Tcl_GetLongFromObj,  Tcl_GetWideIntFromObj, Tcl_GetBignumFromObj, |
       and Tcl_TakeBignumFromObj routines attempt to retrieve an integral value of the	appropri- |
       ate  type  from	the Tcl object objPtr.	If the attempt succeeds, then TCL_OK is returned, |
       and the value is written to the storage provided by the caller.	The attempt might fail if |
       objPtr  does  not  hold an integral value, or if the value exceeds the range of the target |
       type.  If the attempt fails, then TCL_ERROR is returned, and if	interp	is  non-NULL,  an |
       error  message is left in interp.  The Tcl_ObjType of objPtr may be changed to make subse- |
       quent calls to the same routine more efficient.	Unlike	the  other  functions,	Tcl_Take- |
       BignumFromObj  may  set	the  content  of  the Tcl object objPtr to an empty string in the |
       process of retrieving the multiple-precision integer value.				  |

       The choice between Tcl_GetBignumFromObj and Tcl_TakeBignumFromObj is governed by  how  the |
       caller  will  continue to use objPtr.  If after the mp_int value is retrieved from objPtr, |
       the caller will make no more use of objPtr, then using Tcl_TakeBignumFromObj  permits  Tcl |
       to  detect  when an unshared objPtr permits the value to be moved instead of copied, which |
       should be more efficient.  If anything later in the caller requires objPtr to continue  to |
       hold the same value, then Tcl_GetBignumFromObj must be chosen.				  |

       The Tcl_InitBignumFromDouble routine is a utility procedure that extracts the integer part |
       of doubleValue and stores that integer value in the mp_int value bigValue.
