maybe it can run on anything with a C compiler ... as long as it was deliberately written to work on any OS with any CRT implementation, using no system-specific libraries, and making no assumptions about the underlying hardware. Laugh | :laugh: Laugh | :laugh: Laugh | :laugh:

the C spec only specifies minimum sizes for short, int and long. int and short must be at least 16 bits. long must be at least 32 bits.

so what any of those types means in terms of storage and CPU handling (aka performance) depends on the compiler and the target architecture.
