Hello,

I have seen people write 1,000,000 as 1000000 and as 1000000L. Is there a difference between the two? I've used System.out.println() to show me what their values are. They're the same. Why would someone want to use 1000000L instead of just 1000000?

Hello Nathan and welcome to the Ranch!

You can read about that in the JLS: Integer Literals.
