    Analog SHARC - CHAR_BIT == 32
    DSP 56156 Motorola - CHAR_BIT = 32
    DSP Texas - CHAR_BIT = 16

    Just a few.

    Cool. I'll keep that in mind.
    Try not.
    Do or do not.
    There is no try.

    So Dave and Prelude,
    Are you saying that on a machine where CHAR_BIT is 16:

    If an int is 16 bits, sizeof(int) returns 1?
    If an int is 32 bits, sizeof(int) returns 2?

    yes. sizeof() returns size in chars, however big a char may be.

    And what you wanna bet each memory location on such a machine is also 16 bits wide.
