INTEGER


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

Syntax:
dim variable as Integer
dim variable as Integer<bits>

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

Description:
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>.

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