  • If the argument is negative infinity or any value less than or equal to the value of Integer.MIN_VALUE or Long.MIN_VALUE, the result is equal to the value of Integer.MIN_VALUE or Long.MIN_VALUE.
  • If the argument is positive infinity or any value greater than or equal to the value of Integer.MAX_VALUE or Long.MAX_VALUE, the result is equal to the value of Integer.MAX_VALUE or Long.MAX_VALUE.
