short

The short type modifier specifies that an int variable uses less-than or the same amount of storage as an int type. It is used as follows:

<[>{signed|unsigned}<]> short <[>int<]> name <[>= value<]>;

Where

name is the name of the variable.
value is the value to assign to the variable.

Note

  • The C251 Compiler allocates the same amount of storage for short types (2 bytes) as it does for int types (2 bytes).

Refer to 2-Byte Scalars for information regarding the format of short types.
