Description

The ToDouble function converts a value to a double-precision numeric value, if possible.

Attempting to convert a value to a double-precision numeric value which has no numeric representation results in an "invalid argument" error.

Host languages have varying support for double-precision numeric values. Within FaunaDB, double-precision numeric values are stored and operated on as 64-bit, IEEE 754, double-precision float values. The host language you use may affect how the result of ToDouble can be interpreted.

Parameters

value

Any
