Hyper Integer and Unsigned Hyper Integer

The standard defines 64–bit (8-byte) numbers called hyper int and unsigned hyper int with representations that are the obvious extensions of integer and unsigned integer, defined previously. They are represented in two's complement notation; the most-significant and least-significant bytes are 0 and 7, respectively.


Hyper integers are declared as follows.

hyper int  identifier;
unsigned hyper int identifier;
