Standard data type: 32-bit or 64-bit signed, same size as SizeOf(Any Ptr)

dim variable as Integer
dim variable as Integer<bits>

A numeric constant expression indicating the size in bits of integer desired. The values allowed are 8, 16, 32 or 64.

Integer is the main data type FreeBASIC uses for integer math and bitwise operations. It is the default type for number literals.

In the first form Integer is a 32-bit or 64-bit signed whole-number data type, depending on the target platform.

If an explicit bit size is given (the second form), a data type is provided that can hold values from -1LL Shl (bits-1) up to (1LL Shl (bits-1)) - 1. The selected data type is Byte for Integer<8>, Short for Integer<16>, Long for Integer<32> and LongInt for Integer<64>.

#if __FB_64BIT__
    Dim x As Integer = &H8000000000000000
    Dim y As Integer = &H7FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
    Print "Integer Range = "; x; " to "; y
    Dim x As Integer = &H80000000
    Dim y As Integer = &H7FFFFFFF
    Print "Integer Range = "; x; " to "; y
