Integer Types

The format of an integer-type variable depends on its minimum and maximum bounds.

  • If both bounds are within the range 128..127 (Shortint), the variable is stored as a signed byte.
  • If both bounds are within the range 0..255 (Byte), the variable is stored as an unsigned byte.
  • If both bounds are within the range 32768..32767 (Smallint), the variable is stored as a signed word.
  • If both bounds are within the range 0..65535 (Word), the variable is stored as an unsigned word.
  • If both bounds are within the range 2147483648..2147483647 (Longint), the variable is stored as a signed double word.
  • If both bounds are within the range 0..4294967295 (Longword), the variable is stored as an unsigned double word.
  • Otherwise, the variable is stored as a signed quadruple word (Int64).
