## Is Int64 same as long long?

Anyway, there is no real difference between the two: as you said, both are used to create a 64 bit integer… on today’s 32 bit platforms. While __int64 is probably guaranteed to always implement 64 bit integers (due to its name), long long is not tied to a particular bit size.

## Is long long int same as long long?

But before starting the blog post, I want to make you clear that long and long int are identical and also long long and long long int. In both cases, the int is optional. There are several shorthands for built-in types. Let’s see some examples of signed built-in types.

**Is long the same as Int32?**

The key difference between int and long is that int is 32 bits in width while long is 64 bits in width.

### What is the difference between long and long long in C?

long is equivalent to long int , just as short is equivalent to short int . A long int is a signed integral type that is at least 32 bits, while a long long or long long int is a signed integral type is at least 64 bits.

### When should I use long long?

The long long takes twice as much memory as long. In different systems, the allocated memory space differs. On Linux environment the long takes 64-bit (8-bytes) of space, and the long long takes 128-bits (16-bytes) of space. This is used when we want to deal with some large value of integers.

**Is Int64 long C++?**

The __int64 type is synonymous with type long long .

#### Is long the same as long int in C?

But the use of long int , since int can be omitted, it’s just the same as long by definition. sizeof (long) == sizeof (long long) is possible, and common among 64-bit platforms besides Windows.

#### Should I use long or int?

Long is the Object form of long , and Integer is the object form of int . The long uses 64 bits. The int uses 32 bits, and so can only hold numbers up to ±2 billion (-231 to +231-1). You should use long and int , except where you need to make use of methods inherited from Object , such as hashcode .

**Why do we use long int in C?**

long int. A long int typically uses twice as many bits as a regular int, allowing it to hold much larger numbers. printf and scanf replace %d or %i with %ld or %li to indicate the use of a long int.

## Is long 32 or 64-bit?

Windows: long and int remain 32-bit in length, and special new data types are defined for 64-bit integers.

## Is Long Long signed or unsigned?
