Java Long - toString() Method

The java.lang.Long.toString() method returns a string representation of the first argument in the radix specified by the second argument. If the radix is smaller than Character.MIN_RADIX or larger than Character.MAX_RADIX, then the radix 10 is used instead.


public static String toString(long i,
                              int radix)


i Specify the long to be converted.
radix Specify the radix to use in the string representation.

Return Value

Returns a string representation of the argument in the specified radix.




In the example below, the java.lang.Long.toString() method returns a String object representing the given long argument using specified radix.

import java.lang.*;

public class MyClass {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    //creating a long value
    long x = 111;

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

    //creating and printing the string representation
    //of the long value using different radix
    System.out.println("The x in binary is: " + Long.toString(x, 2));
    System.out.println("The x in octal is: " + Long.toString(x, 8)); 
    System.out.println("The x in hexadecimal is: " + Long.toString(x, 16));    

The output of the above code will be:

The long value is: 111
The x in binary is: 1101111
The x in octal is: 157
The x in hexadecimal is: 6f
