What range of values can integer types store in C

0 votes
On a 32-bit machine, can an unsigned long int carry a ten-digit value (1,000,000,000 - 9,999,999,999)?

What are the unsigned long int, long int, unsigned int, short int, short unsigned int, and int ranges?

You may rely on the following minimal ranges:

-32,767 to 32,767 unsigned short int and int: 0 to 65,535 long int: 0 to 65,535

unsigned long int: 0 to 4,294,967,295 -2,147,483,647 to 2,147,483,647

This means that long int cannot be used to hold any ten-digit value.

However, in C99 and C++11, a bigger type long long int was added (this type is also often supported as an extension by compilers built for older standards that did not include it).

If your compiler supports it, the minimal range for this type is:

long long int: -9,223,372,036,854,775,807 to 9,223,372,036,854,775,807 unsigned long long int: 0 to 18,446,744,073,709,551,615 long long int: 0 to 18,446,744,073,709,551,615

So that kind will suffice (again, assuming you have it).

Cases of static and dynamic binding in C++

When an object's static type is used to associate it with a member function, this is known as static binding (understand the type of its class). When a pointer or reference is associated with a member function based on the dynamic type of the object, this is known as dynamic binding (understand the instance of the variable at runtime). Before continuing, keep in mind that dynamic binding only works with pointers, references, and virtual functions for the base class. Because everything needed to call the function is known at compile time, the first call is a static binding (also known as early binding). Derived1 d1(1, 10); d1.display_data(); You already know that the d1 instance is a Derived1 automatic variable, and that it will call the Derived1::display data method (). The first condition is incorrect: d1 is neither a pointer nor a reference. The second condition isn't acceptable:  There is no virtual Derived1::display data. The second call is for ...READ MORE
