[fpc-devel] integer, cardinal

Hello fpc-devel,

  Why integer is 16-bit in default (FPC) mode?
  It's ok to define it as 16-bit in BP-compatibility mode, but in FPC
  it should be like in delphi - natural to the platform, i.e. 32-bit
  for 32-bit x86... or does 64-bit platform also uses 32-bit integers
  as default, so that longint would be good?

Best regards,
 Yury                          mailto:ybxsoft at tut.by
