Hi,
when a variable is declared as int, it is 32 bits long.
The highest order bit of a variable denotes the sign of the variable,
if highest order bit = 1 then the var is -VE
if highest order bit = 0 then the var is +VE
Say I is an integer variable
I is internally represented in binary (32 bits) as :
10000000000000000000000000000000
The highest order bit is 1. How does java interpret this binary representation?? Does it interpret as 2147483648 or does it interpret as a ZERO (with a 1 in the highest bit posn). I'm quite confused, please explain.
Thanx,
Aslesh

this is -((2^31)+1)
i.e. the smallest number available for a int
2147483649
