2.1 Basic Types

Basic types are Bool, Float and Int. They can easily be identified in the syntax by values such as

  • true and false for Bool,
  • 1, 0, -1 and 0xFF0000 for Int and
  • 1.0, 0.0, -1.0, 1e10 for Float.

Basic types are not classes in Haxe. They are implemented as abstract types and are tied to the compiler's internal operator-handling as described in the following sections.
