Getting a STRING from a NUMERIC object

Every class has the out method that can be used to get a text version of the object. For a lot of class, this method return internal informations that are not really useful for the end user. But for every NUMERIC class, the out method return a text representation of the number that the NUMERIC object represents.

print_integer(a_integer:INTEGER) -- Print the value of `a_integer' do print(a_integer.out + "%N") end

Note that for more advance convertion, you can also used convertion class like FORMAT_DOUBLE.
