Unformatted text preview: memory.
The value stored in this variable is 12 in the decimal numbering system.
00H A variable of type char takes two bytes of memory. Here the
variable stores the value 41H, the character code of uppercase
letter A. 41H is 65 in the decimal system. D2H
0EH Here, the two bytes of a variable of type short store the value
4D2H, which is 1234 in the decimal system. 6FH
09H A variable of type int reserves 4 bytes of memory. The value
56F0EH, or 356110, is stored by this variable. The four bytes
00H, 05H, 6FH, and 0EH are stored so that the least significant
byte has the smallest memory address. F2H
E9H A variable of type long reserves 8 bytes of memory. The value stored
in this variable is 114F2094BH, or 4646373707. Also the bytes of a
long variable are stored so that the more significant bytes come after
the less significant bytes. The processors of personal computers generally store bytes of integral variables in this order, which is said to be
the little-endian order. There a...
