[Gambas-user] Making a integer constant represent a long value

This may be a simple, perhaps silly question! 

Is there some short form way of identifying a literal number as a long? 

If I put the following into my code: 

dim a as variant = 1 ' this will always be a integer 

dim a as variant = clong(1) ' this will be a long. 

So is there a short form, like for hex value or so? 

something like: 
Dim a as variant = 1L ' this would be a long 

Maybe I just don't see this in the documentation?
