Short Integer / Int data Type
How is "short int" datatype used in C++?.
The "short int" data type
is used for short integers. The signed range of the datatype is between -32768 to 32767 and the unsigned range is between 0 to 65535.
signed short int s = -32768;
cout << s << '\n';
cout << "Bytes used by short int is:" << sizeof(s);
Bytes used by short int is:2
In the above example, the minimum signed integer value of -"32768" is displayed, also the number of bytes used by this datatype is got using the sizeof() function.
