    That implication is not necessarily valid. sizeof(char) is 1, by definition, but even if CHAR_BIT is 32 there is no requirement that an int must be 32 bits.
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    Depending upon the register/word size of your machine. Also, you can check the size by using sizeof() operator.
    I don't care if someone doesn't like me, i was not put on earth to entertain everyone.
