You can do 'if (object instanceof Real) ...' or
'if (object instanceof Text) ...'. Or with the MathTypes
use 'if (object instanceof RealType) ...' or
'if (object instanceof TextType) ...'.
This is really an elementary programming question. You
should try harder to answer such questions for yourself.
