there is no place like 127.0.0.1

I'm a little ashamed to ask this  Roll Eyes but curiosity is stronger.

Is there a way to specify a byte constant like the 'l' for long values in long number = 0l ?

Uh, I don't think so. If you're assigning the value to a 'byte' primitive type, then there shouldn't be a problem.

Can you be more specific? For example - why does it matter? Perhaps I can suggest a workaround if you're running into some problem.

Because it's really bastard annoying having to type (byte)this and (byte)that all over the sodding place  Angry
And no, there isn't Sad Submit an RFE, it's a fairly trivial language tweak.
I'd quite like a binary constant annotation as well (%1010101 or something)

That's exactly the point,i have a setState(byte state) or something likely method and if i call setState(0) cause a type mismatch error.

Binary annotations would be a nice addition too, it's anoying to rely on bitwise operators for that, anyway, you finish up knowing well the first 12 or 16 "2^n".


btw: lol that phrase could be said by Jhon Constantine himself

But you do know that you can cast it , right?  And call setState((byte)0)
