Limits for integral numbers

Table 40 gives the ranges for integral numbers in ARM C and C++. The Value column of the table gives the numerical value of the range endpoint. The Hex value column gives the bit pattern (in hexadecimal) that is interpreted as this value by the ARM compiler. These constants are defined in the limits.h include file.

When entering a constant, choose the size and sign with care. Constants are interpreted differently in decimal and hexadecimal/octal. See the appropriate C or C++ standard, or any of the recommended C and C++ textbooks for more information, as described in Further reading of Introducing the ARM Compiler toolchain.
