A short grumble
I came across this little oddity today with the way shorts are handled - the method looks like this:
public void someMethod(short s);
So I tried to call it like so:
Which doesn't compile! You have to add a cast to convert the integer down to a short:
Which is kind of ugly. Oddly, the following does work:
short s = 1;
Go figure! And unlike with longs, floats or doubles, there appears to be no suffix that you can apply to tell the compiler it should be a short value. Annoying.
