C++ program for printing the range data type like int, char, short.
Signed Data Types
METHOD 1.) calculate total number of bits by multiplying sizeof with 8 (say n) 2.) Calculate -2^(n-1) for minimum range 3.) Calculate (2^(n-1))-1 for maximum range
signed char: -128 to 127 signed int: -2147483648 to 2147483647 signed short int: -32768 to 32767
Unsigned Data Types
METHOD 1.)Find number of bits by multiplying result of sizeof with 8 say n 2.)minimum range is always zero for unsigned data type 3.)for maximum range calculate 2^n-1
unsigned char: 0 to 255 unsigned int: 0 to 4294967295 unsigned short int: 0 to 65535
