## Libraries.Compute.Statistics.Calculations.GammaContinuedFraction Documentation

This class is a continued fraction used by the Gamma calculations. It is a helper class and does not need to be used by users.

## 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.

#### Return

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

Example

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

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

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

#### Return

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

Example

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

### GetHashCode()

This action gets the hash code for an object.

#### Return

integer: The integer hash code of the object.

Example
