For example, 0xff, 0Xff, 0xFF, and 0XFF represent the same hexadecimal constant, which is equivalent to the decimal constant 255. Because the integer constants you define will eventually be used in expressions and declarations, their type is important. The type of a constant is determined at the same time as its value is defined. Integer constants such as the examples just mentioned usually have the type int. However, if the value of an integer constant is outside the range of the type int, then it must have a bigger type.
