    Mostly integer I guess. It depends though on what I need the program to do, what it is for, etc. etc. etc.

    Whoops, I meant Double Long, not Double Float. Sorry. Well, I like double long, holds a lot, but doesn't need an F at the end.

    ints are great.

    doubles are used a lot for 3d graphics...which i havent gotten into yet, so i still mostly use the good ol' ints.

    >3d graphics

    you could use fixed point math... this would rid you of needing to use the FPU excessively and save you a lot of time [run-time, that is...]... eventually the usage of various variable types cannot be generalized such...

    but in 32-bit compilers such as GCC or Visual C++, an integer is the same thing as a Long, isn't it?

    I always do

    int i;

    wait no, I don't, I use the variable i for for's, maybe something like

    int MyIntegerVariableWhichDoesNothingAtAll;

    ask Null Shinji, he knows how I name variables and functions

    Integers aren't neccesary numeric. Iterating through an array is not really all that mathematical, but ya sure as hell don't want to do it with floats.

    Has anyone ever made some bitwise using Long Integer's (128 bit in DJGPP)?
