conversion binary

Converts a value of primitive type or a BYTE ARRAY into a long value.

The TOLONG function consumes a parameter (BOOLEAN, LONG, DOUBLE, STRING) from the top of the stack and pushes back its conversion to long.

Beware of string inputs with leading zeros: it could be considered as octal. See examples below.

TOLONG is available since version 1.0.0.
