Integer

The integer datatype is a base 10 number with no fractional component.

The string representation is defined in ABNF as:

integer = "0" / (["-"] non-zero *digit)
digit =  "0" / positive-digit
non-zero =  "1" / "2" / "3" / "4" / "5" / "6" / "7" / "8" / "9"

Leading zeros are not allowed, except for the integer 0, which is represented as the string 0. Negative values are marked with a leading “-” character (UNICODE 0x2D HYPHEN-MINUS).

Numeric values such as Infinity and NaN are not permitted.

The following examples are all valid integer values:

100
0
-200

The integer maximum size is dependent on the implementation.
