Operators and functions that expect arguments to be of a particular
type automatically convert the arguments to that type, e.g. sin('2.1') will convert
the argument to a double, length(123) will first convert the number to a string.
Explicit conversion can be achieved with toint, toreal, tostring functions.
Explicit conversion can be achieved with to_int, to_real, to_string functions.
If implicit or explicit conversion is invalid, the evaluation returns an error.
Comparison operators do numeric comparison in case both operators are numeric (int/double)
or they can be converted to numeric types.
Arithmetic operators do integer arithmetics if both operands are integer. That is
2+2 yields integer 4, but 2.0+2 returns real number 4.0. There are also two versions of
division and modulo operators: 1.0/2 returns 0.5 while 1/2 returns 0.
