C Programming: Tips of the Day

What is the size of an enum in c?

An enum is only guaranteed to be large enough to hold int values. The compiler is free to choose the actual type used based on the enumeration constants defined so it can choose a smaller type if it can represent the values you define. If you need enumeration constants that don't fit into an int you will need to use compiler-specific extensions to do so.
