## Actions Documentation

### Compare(Libraries.Language.Object object)

This action compares two object hash codes and returns an integer. The result is larger if this hash code is larger than the object passed as a parameter, smaller, or equal. In this case, -1 means smaller, 0 means equal, and 1 means larger. This action was changed in Quorum 7 to return an integer, instead of a CompareResult object, because the previous implementation was causing efficiency issues.

Example Code

``````Object o
Object t
integer result = o:Compare(t) //1 (larger), 0 (equal), or -1 (smaller)``````

#### Return

integer: The Compare result, Smaller, Equal, or Larger.

### Equals(Libraries.Language.Object object)

This action determines if two objects are equal based on their hash code values.

Example Code

``````use Libraries.Language.Object
use Libraries.Language.Types.Text
Object o
Text t
boolean result = o:Equals(t)``````

#### Return

boolean: True if the hash codes are equal and false if they are not equal.

### Evaluate(number x, integer maxIterations)

Evaluate the continued fraction for a max number of iterations.

number:

### Evaluate(number x, number epsilon, integer maxIterations)

Evaluate the continued fraction for a number, with a specified error, for a maximum number of iterations.

number:

### Evaluate(number x)

Evaluate the continued fraction for a particular number.

number:

### Evaluate(number x, number epsilon)

Evaluate the continued fraction for a number with a particular max error.

#### Return

number:

### GetA(integer n, number x)

#### Return

number

### GetB(integer n, number x)

#### Return

number

### GetHashCode()

This action gets the hash code for an object.

Example Code

``````Object o
integer hash = o:GetHashCode()``````

#### Return

integer: The integer hash code of the object.
