Test for the string being an integer. If bounds are given to the constructor, then the integer given also needs to be within the interval specified by these bounds. Note that unlike common convention in the C++ standard library, both bounds of this interval are inclusive; the reason is that in practice in most cases, one needs closed intervals, but these can only be realized with inclusive bounds for noninteger values. We thus stay consistent by always using closed intervals.
If the upper bound given to the constructor is smaller than the lower bound, then every integer is allowed.
Giving bounds may be useful if for example a value can only be positive and less than a reasonable upper bound (for example the number of refinement steps to be performed), or in many other cases.

Patterns::Integer::Integer  (  const int  lower_bound = min_int_value , 
const int  upper_bound = max_int_value 

) 
Constructor. Bounds can be specified within which a valid parameter has to be. If the upper bound is smaller than the lower bound, then the entire set of integers is implied. The default values are chosen such that no bounds are enforced on parameters.
Note that the range implied by an object of the current type is inclusive of both bounds values, i.e., the upper_bound
is an allowed value, rather than indicating a halfopen value as is often done in other contexts.

overridevirtual 
Return true
if the string is an integer and its value is within the specified range.
Implements Patterns::PatternBase.
Definition at line 217 of file patterns.cc.

overridevirtual 
Return a description of the pattern that valid strings are expected to match. If bounds were specified to the constructor, then include them into this description.
Implements Patterns::PatternBase.
Definition at line 239 of file patterns.cc.

overridevirtual 
Return a copy of the present object, which is newly allocated on the heap. Ownership of that object is transferred to the caller of this function.

static 
Create a new object if the start of description matches description_init. Ownership of that object is transferred to the caller of this function.

static 
Minimal integer value. If the numeric_limits class is available use this information to obtain the extremal values, otherwise set it so that this class understands that all values are allowed.

static 
Maximal integer value. If the numeric_limits class is available use this information to obtain the extremal values, otherwise set it so that this class understands that all values are allowed.
Definition at line 203 of file patterns.h.

private 
Value of the lower bound. A number that satisfies the match operation of this class must be equal to this value or larger, if the bounds of the interval for a valid range.
Definition at line 258 of file patterns.h.

private 
Value of the upper bound. A number that satisfies the match operation of this class must be equal to this value or less, if the bounds of the interval for a valid range.
