17.4 Integer types [cstdint]

17.4.1 General [cstdint.general]

The header <cstdint> supplies integer types having specified widths, and macros that specify limits of integer types.

17.4.2 Header <cstdint> synopsis [cstdint.syn]

namespace std { using int8_t = signed integer type; // optional using int16_t = signed integer type; // optional using int32_t = signed integer type; // optional using int64_t = signed integer type; // optional using intN_t = see below; // optional using int_fast8_t = signed integer type; using int_fast16_t = signed integer type; using int_fast32_t = signed integer type; using int_fast64_t = signed integer type; using int_fastN_t = see below; // optional using int_least8_t = signed integer type; using int_least16_t = signed integer type; using int_least32_t = signed integer type; using int_least64_t = signed integer type; using int_leastN_t = see below; // optional using intmax_t = signed integer type; using intptr_t = signed integer type; // optional using uint8_t = unsigned integer type; // optional using uint16_t = unsigned integer type; // optional using uint32_t = unsigned integer type; // optional using uint64_t = unsigned integer type; // optional using uintN_t = see below; // optional using uint_fast8_t = unsigned integer type; using uint_fast16_t = unsigned integer type; using uint_fast32_t = unsigned integer type; using uint_fast64_t = unsigned integer type; using uint_fastN_t = see below; // optional using uint_least8_t = unsigned integer type; using uint_least16_t = unsigned integer type; using uint_least32_t = unsigned integer type; using uint_least64_t = unsigned integer type; using uint_leastN_t = see below; // optional using uintmax_t = unsigned integer type; using uintptr_t = unsigned integer type; // optional } #define INTN_MIN see below #define INTN_MAX see below #define UINTN_MAX see below #define INT_FASTN_MIN see below #define INT_FASTN_MAX see below #define UINT_FASTN_MAX see below #define INT_LEASTN_MIN see below #define INT_LEASTN_MAX see below #define UINT_LEASTN_MAX see below #define INTMAX_MIN see below #define INTMAX_MAX see below #define UINTMAX_MAX see below #define INTPTR_MIN see below // optional #define INTPTR_MAX see below // optional #define UINTPTR_MAX see below // optional #define PTRDIFF_MIN see below #define PTRDIFF_MAX see below #define SIZE_MAX see below #define SIG_ATOMIC_MIN see below #define SIG_ATOMIC_MAX see below #define WCHAR_MIN see below #define WCHAR_MAX see below #define WINT_MIN see below #define WINT_MAX see below #define INTN_C(value) see below #define UINTN_C(value) see below #define INTMAX_C(value) see below #define UINTMAX_C(value) see below
The header defines all types and macros the same as the C standard library header <stdint.h>.
See also: ISO C 7.20
All types that use the placeholder N are optional when N is not 8, 16, 32, or 64.
The exact-width types intN_­t and uintN_­t for N = 8, 16, 32, and 64 are also optional; however, if an implementation defines integer types with the corresponding width and no padding bits, it defines the corresponding typedef-names.
Each of the macros listed in this subclause is defined if and only if the implementation defines the corresponding typedef-name.
[Note 1:
The macros INTN_­C and UINTN_­C correspond to the typedef-names int_­leastN_­t and uint_­leastN_­t, respectively.
