The short answer is....


The long answer is...

ColdFusion does not specifically allow the declaration of data type for
variables (with the exception of the CFQUERYPARAM tag).  However, it does
provide several functions to check the type of a variable after it is
created.  I won't go into all of the functions here, since there are several
excellent examples in the CF documentation.
