The java.lang.Long.parseUnsignedLong() method is used to parse the string argument as an unsigned long in the radix specified by the second argument. An unsigned integer maps the values usually associated with negative numbers to positive numbers larger than MAX_VALUE. The characters in the string must all be digits of the specified radix (as determined by whether Character.digit(char, int) returns a nonnegative value), except that the first character may be an ASCII plus sign '+' ('\u002B'). The resulting integer value is returned.

An exception of type NumberFormatException is thrown if any of the following situations occurs:

  • The first argument is null or is a string of length zero.
  • The radix is either smaller than Character.MIN_RADIX or larger than Character.MAX_RADIX.
  • Any character of the string is not a digit of the specified radix, except that the first character may be a plus sign '+' ('\u002B') provided that the string is longer than length 1.
  • The value represented by the string is larger than the largest unsigned long, 264-1.

Syntax

public static long parseUnsignedLong(String s,
                                     int radix)
                              throws NumberFormatException

Parameters

s Specify the String containing the unsigned integer representation to be parsed.
radix Specify the radix to be used while parsing s.

Return Value

Returns the unsigned long represented by the string argument in the specified radix.

Exception

throws NumberFormatException, if the string does not contain a parsable long.

Example:

In the below example, the java.lang.Long.parseUnsignedLong() method is used to parse the string argument as an unsigned long in the specified radix.

import java.lang.*;

public class MyClass {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    
    //creating a string holding unsigned long value
    String x = "100";
    String y = "6F";

    //creating unsigned long value using 
    //radix as 2 (binary)
    long p = Long.parseUnsignedLong(x, 2);

    //creating unsigned long value using 
    //radix as 16 (hexadecimal)
    long q = Long.parseUnsignedLong(y, 16);

    //printing the string
    System.out.println("The string x is: " + x); 
    System.out.println("The string y is: " + y); 

    //printing the unsigned long values 
    System.out.println("The long value p is: " + p);   
    System.out.println("The long value q is: " + q);    
  }
}

The output of the above code will be:

The string x is: 100
The string y is: 6F
The long value p is: 4
The long value q is: 111
