Integers and Fixed-Point Numbers

  • Brand Fortner

Abstract

The obvious way to store a number larger than 255 is to use two bytes. This gives 216, or 65,536, possible values. This two-byte number is called an integer (or sometimes short integer). It takes four hex digits to display the values in a short integer.
