Basic Types C’s basic (built-in) types: Integer types, including long integers, short integers, and unsigned integers Floating types ( float , double , and long double ) char _Bool (C99) 2
Integer Types C supports two fundamentally different kinds of numeric types: integer types and floating types. Values of an integer type are whole numbers. Values of a floating type can have a fractional part as well. The integer types, in turn, are divided into two categories: signed and unsigned. 3

Signed and Unsigned Integers The leftmost bit of a signed integer (known as the sign bit ) is 0 if the number is positive or zero, 1 if it’s negative. The largest 16-bit integer has the binary representation 0111111111111111, which has the value 32,767 (2 15 – 1). The largest 32-bit integer is 01111111111111111111111111111111 which has the value 2,147,483,647 (2 31 – 1). An integer with no sign bit (the leftmost bit is considered part of the number’s magnitude) is said to be unsigned. The largest 16-bit unsigned integer is 65,535 (2 16 – 1). The largest 32-bit unsigned integer is 4,294,967,295 (2 32 – 1). 4
Signed and Unsigned Integers By default, integer variables are signed in C—the leftmost bit is reserved for the sign. To tell the compiler that a variable has no sign bit, declare it to be unsigned . Unsigned numbers are primarily useful for systems programming and low-level, machine- dependent applications. 5

Integer Types The int type is usually 32 bits, but may be 16 bits on older CPUs. Long integers may have more bits than ordinary integers; short integers may have fewer bits. The specifiers long and short , as well as signed and unsigned , can be combined with int to form integer types. Only six combinations produce different types: short int unsigned short int int unsigned int long int unsigned long int The order of the specifiers doesn’t matter. Also, the word int can be dropped ( long int can be abbreviated to just long ). 6
Integer Types The range of values represented by each of the six integer types varies from one machine to another. However, the C standard requires that short int , int , and long int must each cover a certain minimum range of values. Also, int must not be shorter than short int , and long int must not be shorter than int . 7
