    The values in <limits.h> will give you such things as "CHAR_MAX", "CHAR_MIN", etc.

    Something along the lines of:
    Code:
    int small = INT_MIN;
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    C & C++ (as well as many other languages) are case-sensitive, so int_min and INT_MIN are two completely different names.
