class GFC216 {
static String m(float i) {return "float";}
static String m(double i) {return "double";}
public static void main (String[] args) {
char a1 = 1; long b1 = 2; System.out.print(m(a1)+","+ m(b1));
}}

The following code gives otuput as float, float.

Not sure why m(b1) call the overloaded method < static String m(float i) {return "float";}>

Is'nt long 64 bytes which is greater than 32 bytes for float. So ideally shouldn't the method which accepts double be called ??

Cheers,
JP

You would be much easier to understand if you took that bucket off of your head. And that goes for the tiny ad too!
