**Various platform-dependent constants proposed by ANSI**

**CHAR_BIT**- Length of a char variable in bits.
**CHAR_MAX**- Maximal value which can be stored in a char variable.
**CHAR_MIN**- Minimal value which can be stored in a char variable.
**INT_MAX**- Maximal value which can be stored in an int variable.
**INT_MIN**- Minimal value which can be stored in an int variable.
**LONG_MAX**- Maximal value which can be stored in a long int variable.
**LONG_MIN**- Minimal value which can be stored in a long int variable.
**SCHAR_MAX**- Maximal value which can be stored in a signed char variable.
**SCHAR_MIN**- Minimal value which can be stored in a signed char variable.
**SHRT_MAX**- Maximal value which can be stored in a short int variable.
**SHRT_MIN**- Minimal value which can be stored in a short int variable.
**UCHAR_MAX**- Maximal value which can be stored in an unsigned char variable.
**UINT_MAX**- Maximal value which can be stored in an unsigned int variable.
**ULONG_MAX**- Maximal value which can be stored in an unsigned long int variable.
**USHRT_MAX**- Maximal value which can be stored in an unsigned short variable.

**Note:** CHAR_MAX and CHAR_MIN may have different values depending on whether chars are signed or not.
They are signed by default in GCC4TI, but this may be changed using a compiler command-line switch.
Similarly, INT_MAX, INT_MIN, and UINT_MAX depend on whether short or long integers are used.
