了解 C 語言的數字資料型態...

在「Deep C: Understanding the Design of C Integer Types」這篇文章裡面以 C99 為參考文件,說明 C 語言的資料型態 (尤其是數字的部份)。

裡面引用了規個書的文件,說明「為什麼」數字資料型態會長這樣:

To help ensure that no code explosion occurs for what appears to be a very simple operation, many operations are defined to be how the target machine’s hardware does it rather than by a general abstract rule.

以 target machine 為主要考量的特性與 C 語言被認為是 portable assembly language 的想法還蠻同調的... (What is a portable assembly language?)

所以寫 Portable C code 的人會比較辛苦,需要查規格書的資料,確保各平台都能夠正確被編譯... 而到最後演變成沒什麼人在管 "portable" 這件事情,反正 Autotools 開下去針對不能跑的平台用不同的 code XD
