Why data types in all programming languages have some range? Why ritche have disigned first time li..

Answer / vignesh1998i

good morning ,

ya ur doubt is absolutely correct.... in the real time operation a human being can easily process and seperate the numbers and character s etc etc categories since we have got our own intelligence .... but when we come to computers they dont have... so we are the users , we make instructions to make it understand it.... if we make the computer to understand like us , there will be no difference between that and a human being... upto certain level only we can make computers to understand........ using intelligence we are differenciating things...... but in computers it will be very complex to it understand... like this we can keep on arguing with lots of points..........


thank u

Why data types in all programming languages have some range? Why ritche have disigned first time li..

Answer / nitin

Different data types and ranges require different amounts
of memory.
To optimize memory use and processing speed, practical
limits are set.
Ultimately everything has to be processed in binary, so
more complex characters require translation which takes
additional time, processing capacity, and memory.
Small differences when multiplied by billions of processes
have an impact.
