Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (ODATA-341) Can we get rid of the optional trailing 'L'/'l' for int64 numbers

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-341?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=33124#action_33124 ] 

Hubert Heijkers commented on ODATA-341:

There doesn't seem to be a reason for having the 'l' or 'L' to indicate we are dealing with a 64-bit integer value. Also we are no longer allowing function overloading within the same type family so it is, presuming it was, no longer required to choose the appropriate override of a function either. The same applies to the 'f'/'F', 'd'/'D' and 'm'/'M' qualifiers indicating single, double and decimal values respectively. The proposal is updated to include the removal of those as well.

>            Reporter: Hubert Heijkers
>            Priority: Minor
> According to the ABNF an optional 'L'/'l' character MAY be included. I was asked why this was and failed to give an answer. Dear I ask why we allow this whereas we don't make any distinction that way for the other integer types?We already allow for upscaling to a bigger type, why couldn't any integer number be just specified using its digits full well knowing that if more then 15 digits are required it has to be an int64 number ?
